Keynote speaker for the 2020 ISPE Aseptic Conference, Alonza Cruse, Director, Office of Pharmaceutical Quality Operations, FDA/ORA

His office is responsible for all pharmaceutical quality inspections and investigations, working in conjunction with the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation & Research and the Center for Veterinary Medicine. Additionally, he is leading ORA’s pharmaceutical collaboration efforts under the Program Alignment initiative.

Alonza Cruse will provide current regulatory perspectives on aseptic processing during his keynote presentation, and answers your most pressing quality and regulatory questions directly with six FDA colleagues during the Interactive Regulatory Panel.

While many conferences just discuss the theoretical aspects of aseptic, barrier, and containment, the 2020 ISPE Aseptic Conference provides you with insights from aseptic professionals with 30+ years of experience, representing global companies that have implemented projects and technologies of peak interest.

Don't miss your chance to be immersed in collaborative, thought-provoking sessions featuring:

  • Face-to-face interaction with the FDA
  • Hot topic discussions
  • Owner experiences and lessons learned
  • Case study presentations
  • Group breakout discussions
