GLP Bioanalysis - Day 1

8:00 am Registration and Morning Coffee


8:30 – 11:50 Writing SOP’s (20 minute coffee break included)
Compliance with the requirements of a Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Study Protocol can only be achieved if the analytical methods and other study conduct operations are properly described in written Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) documents. Failure to have adequate study documentation and SOPs shows up frequently in FDA warning letters to institutions having GLP compliance problems. This seminar will provide attendees with essential tools for the job of creating a compliant SOP system. It will cover:
* How to develop an effective SOP and write clear, practical instructions
* How to set up your SOP process so employees know who’s responsible for what and how often to review and update procedures
* The details to include — and avoid — when drafting a SOP
* Steps for monitoring and auditing SOP compliance

I worked for 9+ years (1992-2000) in Merck and Co. as a lead analytical biochemist responsible for planning, prioritizing, conducting, and documenting studies to provide analytical support for vaccines and biotechnology-derived proteins under cGMP. I have 6+ years experience in leading and managing the standard setting activities of the US Pharmacopeia (2000-2006) in different capacities, including the Director of the Noncomplex Actives (pharmaceutical drugs) and Excipients Division in the Dept. of Standards Development. At present, I am a staff of the Division of Product Quality (DPQ) of the Office of Vaccine Review and Research (OVRR), Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since August, 2006. I served as the Validation Manager until November 2007 and as the Quality Manager since July 2007. I was a faculty at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York (1986-1992), and obtained his Ph.D. (1983) from Calcutta University, India.
