He received his B.S in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. in Biochemical Engineering from Cornell University.

Many organizations utilize CDMO’s for part or all of their CMC drug development work.  This can include process development, analytic development and qualification, drug substance manufacturing, drug product manufacturing, QC, and stability programs.  This course will describe how to identify, evaluate, select, and manage CDMO’s for drug development projects.  The identification, evaluation, and selection process for a project CDMO needs to be planned with the establishment of criteria for each step.  The types of contracts that must be put in place between the sponsor and service provider will be described and examples will be provided.  Once the project is initiated effective project management must be utilized by the leaders to ensure the timely and within budget completion of the project.
