2016 IQ CMC Summit
Each year, the IQ Consortium's CMC focused Leadership and Working Group members are invited to attend a one-day CMC Summit. The Summit highlights accomplishments within both IQ Leadership and Working Groups, provides updates on current Consortium initiatives and provides a stage upon which selected topics can be discussed for potential cross-functional interest. This year's Summit will be held on Wednesday, June 15th.
The Summit is preceded by a Working Group Chairs Forum and individual meetings of the 6 IQ CMC Leadership Groups: API, Analytical, Biologics CMC, Drug Product, Good Manufacturing Practice and Quality Assurance, and Statistics. The WG Chairs Forum is a face-to-face meeting of WG chairs/vice-chairs/co-chairs to share experiences, best practices and challenges in WG management. Topics may include how to motivate team members and keep them engaged, how to keep WGs focused and manageable, how to access and leverage resources and support provided by IQ Board, Leadership Groups and the IQ Secretariat, etc. These meetings will be held on Tuesday, June 14th.
