The 15th Annual PDA Global Conference on Pharmaceutical Microbiology is going Virtual!

This year will continue the ongoing tradition of addressing the opportunities and challenges that are most relevant to the future of microbiology in today’s global market. In an interactive, virtual environment, join new and seasoned professionals from all facets of the field. Global industry, academia, and regulatory authorities will share insights on how to best prepare for the future through the sharing of best practices, development of standards, and integration of innovative technologies.

Take a look at the many opportunities that will shape the future of the pharmaceutical industry, such as:

  • How to best use non-compendial methods for microbial testing of new products
  • How to overcome challenges with aseptic processing
  • The effective use of risk assessment and mitigation in product manufacturing, environmental monitoring, and microbial control. 

The comprehensive program agenda will include presentations from global regulatory and industry experts who will share recent case studies and current trends in the field of pharmaceutical microbiology. 

The new virtual event format will provide you with plenty of opportunities to listen to and directly interact with all the speakers, and to participate in lively Q&A sessions. During the conference, PDA will host many virtual poster presentations and a virtual exhibition of leading bio/pharmaceutical companies that will showcase new technologies and trends for pharmaceutical microbiology strategies. We hope to see you there!
