The tenth annual delivery of the popular MMI 2 day course and workshop, in collaboration with Pfizer, on Molecules to Medicines – How Biopharma Delivers, successfully took place on 24/25 November respectively in the TCD Institute of Molecular Medicine and the MMI offices.The course provided a comprehensive overview of the discovery, development and manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals using Pfizer’s Grange Castle operations as the case study.
Day 1 attracted over 55 people. On Day 2, a small group of attendees participated in the workshop held at MMI’s offices on St Stephen’s Green. Here Pfizer staff facilitated further discussion and clarification of the previous day’s lectures as well as breakout sessions which prompted attendees to solve specifically devised problem sets.
A follow-up visit to the Pfizer Biotech campus at Grange Castle was organised for a limited group of course attendees on 26 November 2015. Following a video presentation about the Pfizer facility, Pfizer scientists took the group on a tour of the development labs. The visit ended with a Q&A session. Many thanks to Pfizer staff for so generously giving their time and effort across three days of the intensive programme.
