Industrial Robots in the U.S. – An Update on the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM)

Education Level: Advanced/Executive

The Healthcare Industry has seen many changes over the past few years, and the speed to these changes will only continue to increase as technology and business models evolve to respond to patient needs. This session will focus on two key topics that will help organizations and individual respond to these forces:  1) How industry collectively responds to these forces working end to end working with government and academia and 2) How you as an individual need to prepare yourself and which specific capabilities will be needed in the “Workforce of the Future.”

Speakers

  • Jay Douglass, Chief Operating Officer, Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM)

Process, Product, Patient – Advanced Technology in Janssen Manufacturing

Education Level: Advanced

The science of biochemistry is advancing at lightning speed, as we come to understand how cancers and other diseases function and the molecular level.  With this understanding comes breakthrough therapies.  How do we as an industry manufacture those new therapies?  How do we manufacture new or existing therapies using modern methods to reduce cost, improve yield, and maintain high quality?  This session will explore cutting edge technologies for manufacturing, from novel therapies to continuous processing.
