A Week of Bioanalysis, Biomarkers, and Immunogenecity at WRIB

Over 750 professionals representing pharmas/biopharmas, biotechs, CROs and multiple regulatory agencies working on both small and large molecules bioanalysis participated in the 11th WRIB (Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis) on April 3-7, 2017 in LA/Universal City, California, USA.

The 2017 White Paper in Bioanalysis from the 11th WRIB has just been published on Journal Bioanaysis. View Links to 2017 White Paper and previous White Papers

New! The Decennial Index of the White Papers in Bioanalysis: "A Decade of Recommendations (2007-2016)" has just been published. This Decennial Index Paper will help you search easily by topics and see the evolution of the recommendations on the same topic over the years! (Note: You must save the pdf file to your computer then re-open it from your computer in order to activate the search functions in the pdf)

Built on the previous success, the 12th WRIB will take place on April 9-13, 2018 in downtown Philadelphia, and will continue to be a forum where regulators and industry convene for working together in the field of bioanalysis, biomarkers, and immunogenicity to improve global health.

What makes WRIB special?

In this busy and fast paced environment, it is great to attend a conference that organizes everything for you so all you need to do is to focus on your learning:

  • No need to rush at last minute to print speakers/course slides before you travel... At WRIB you'll receive a program book with all the materials you need;
  • No need to take notes on a blank paper or on your computer/ipad... At WRIB you have the slides of all the speakers in the program book, so take your notes right on the slides where they belong to;
  • No need to look for which session to follow or scramble from one room to another to catch different speakers in multiple parallel session... At WRIB all sessions are sequential so just sit and relax enjoying the sessions with your coffee/tea :-)
  • No need to run to look for a restaurant/cafe to eat breakfast or lunch... At WRIB, food and snacks and wine and beers are all included for you every single day so you can just focused on learning and networking :-).

The 12th WRIB will feature again the novel and unique 3-Day Sequential Program during the Main Workshop Days (Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3) with no parallel sessions for a Full immersion in Bioanalysis. Moreover, attendees have the flexibility to choose Main Workshop Days based on their specific track of interest and learning needs.

In addition to the 3-Day Sequential Main Workshop Days, there will be 6 Full-Day Training Courses covering topics on Small Molecules, Large Molecules, Biotherapeutics, Biomarkers, Immunogenicity, Oligonucleotides, LCMS, Hybrid LBA/LCMS, LBA/Cell-based Assays, and Flow cytometry spreading throughout the week to give attendees many choices to combine Main Workshop Days and Courses to maximize the learning process at any level in any field of expertise.

Participating Regulators at the 12th WRIB will again include all Major and Influential Regulatory Agencies in North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

Like the previous editions, 12th WRIB will again be

  • Very practical with a variety of hot topics/contents;
  • Highly interactive with thought-provoking Q&A dialogs and panel discussions
  • Very informative with the active participation from global regulatory agencies
  • Well formulated with excellent balance of science, regulation and process

High quality, better compliance to regulations, and scientific excellence have been and will always be the foundation of the WRIB!

We look forward to seeing you next April in downtown Philadelphia!
