1980-2020 – ISPE Recognizes its Founding Members

40 years ago, a small group of innovative pharmaceutical engineers recognized the need for better manufacturing facility development guidelines and created ISPE. They recruited additional people to launch the organization; some are retired, some, sadly, are no longer with us, and some remain active ISPE Members. We recognize and thank each of them for their forethought and inspirational ideas that led to ISPE’s establishment and to what it has become. Our deepest gratitude goes to ISPE’s Founding Members.
