BioPlan Associates' Faiz Kermani PhD

Dr Faiz Kermani, Advisory Board: Has helped establish the "Global Health Education Foundation" (GHEF), a not-for-profit healthcare charity to improve educational resources and training for healthcare professionals in developing countries.
At least 1.3 billion people worldwide lack access to the most basic healthcare. The new non-profit foundation, Global Health Education Foundation, aims to tackle such issues. As President of GHEF, Dr Kermani is supporting the R&D focus of the charity to reduce health disparities among developing countries. In particular, the lack of appropriate educational resources and training opportunities for healthcare professionals. http://www.globalhef.org


BioPlan Associates' Managing Director Eric Langer

Eric Langer, Managing Partner: On Advisory Board of “BioProcess Asia Pacific Conference” July 2010 Singapore.
The Biopharmaceutical market in Asia pacific is growing at a rate among the highest in the globe. This is creating a strong need for production of biopharmaceuticals at higher qualities and volumes. Bioprocess AsiaPacific brings together global leaders within biopharmaceutical industry to explore dynamic strategies, benchmark technologies and analyze sustaining the growth of the industry. http://fleminggulf.com/conference/life-science/BioProcessAsiaPacific.

10th Annual Report and Survey of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Capacity and Production

The 2013 10th Annual Report and Survey of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Capacity and Production is the most recent study of biotherapeutic developers and contract manufacturing organizations' current and projected future capacity and production. This year's 10th Annual Report and Survey of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing shows the industry has returned to robust growth. Based on analysis of 238 global biomanufacturers' 2013 budgets, expect substantial investment in new technologies that:

  • Reduce costs and improve productivity
  • Focus on novel downstream technologies
  • Improve single-use device adoption rates

This year, among the hundreds of significant findings: Budgets are growing in all areas measured, but the great majority are continuing to actively implement cost-cutting initiatives; a broad range of new products are being demanded from industry vendors to solve productivity problems, especially in single use and chromatography areas.
