Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Technology Conference
October 09 - 10, 2019 Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Technology Europe Conference

The Inaugural conference from SMi on Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Technology. Covers the microbiological aspects in cleanroom design and engineering. Aspects that encapsulate cleanroom technology and innovation remain one of the most exciting and rapidly advancing areas in manufacturing sectors to date. In 2025, the global cleanroom technology market is expected to reach nearly billion. Stringent regulatory standards for product approval, technological advancements in cleanrooms, initiatives taken by private organisations to create awareness regarding cleanroom and growth of the healthcare sector globally, are among a few factors expected to drive the market. Pharmaceutical and biologics product development and manufacturing processes carry their progressive complexities, which consequently affect cleanliness requirements and outline of facilities. Compliance with the standards for product approval is very important and as a result manufacturing companies in various industries are dependent on cleanroom technology. Join us along with key opinion leaders from all areas of pharmaceuticals, biologicals, and cleanroom industry experts to explore hot topics within cleanroom design and engineering, best practices and regulation, environmental and contamination control, and pharmaceutical microbiology.

Insect Molecular Virology
Bryony C. Bonning presents a new book on Insect Molecular Virology: Advances and Emerging Trends
The volume opens with a description of the insect virome and the explosion in discovery of new viral taxa. The following four chapters focus on anti-viral immunity including endogenous viral elements some of which may provide the molecular basis for long-term anti-viral immunity, the discovery of new viral suppressors of RNA interference, the role of new classes of small RNA molecules in dictating infection outcomes, and the Drosophila-dicistrovirus model as a powerful resource for insect molecular virology. The application of omics tools to insect-vectored plant viral disease, recent advances in tetravirus, polydnavirus, and baculovirus research are then described. The final chapters review progress in baculovirus expression vector and surface display technologies for use in laboratory and therapeutic applications. Written by leading experts, this work is essential reading for students and scholars of insect virology and immunology and provides a valuable resource for users of baculovirus-derived tools read more ...
