Engage with representatives from Montgomery College, Frederick Community College, and UMBC as well as local biotechnology industry leaders though our Training & Employment in Biotechnology virtual symposium!

This semester-long symposium will take place online (via Zoom) from 4:00 – 4:45 pm on select Monday afternoons throughout the spring semester. Sessions will focus on a variety of topics related to the intersection of viruses, vaccines, and the biotech industry.

This week’s topic is: Rapid Development and Manufacturing of Vaccines. FDA’s current regulatory framework assures highest safety standards for vaccines but drives a vaccine development to commercial delivery timeline of on average of 6-7 years from initial clinical study start. Some extraordinary events such as bioterrorism threats or pandemics can expedite the process. The speaker will discuss real-world experience with urgent development and stockpile of the smallpox vaccine. Presented by Dr. Jeff Wells Head of Corporate Development VaLogic LLC.
