Site Visit to Continuus Pharmaceuticals 

Site Visit 1 - 9:30am | Site Visit 2 - 1:30pm


CONTINUUS Pharmaceuticals is a spin-out company from a multi-year collaboration between MIT And Novartis on continuous manufacturing, who specialize in end-to end integrated continuous manufacturing (ICM), with the application of novel process technologies that enable rapid production of pharmaceuticals at significantly reduced costs and better quality. Hosted by CONTINUUS Pharmaceuticals, attendees will be able to visit BOTH their pilot line and main facility, to see first-hand the state-of the- art and fully integrated continuous manufacturing facility.

The site visit will enable you to understand the potential and opportunities in ICM to improve affordability and accessibility of pharmaceuticals on a global scale and evaluate investment, implementation and build-out of commercial ICM plants. With a recent $69.3 million U.S. government grant contract to facilitate domestic production of three vital medicines, find out how CONTINUUS are enabling GMP end-to-end integrated continuous manufacturing.

We’ll provide transportation to and from the conference venue to CONTINUUS Pharmaceuticals. There will be two scheduled visit groups, and places are strictly limited, to ensure social distancing and best learning experience for attendees*.

*As places are very limited, preference will be given to those attending the implementation workshops or focus morning. Please see registration page for charges.
