Safeguarding the quality of medication is fundamental to protecting the public’s health, especially as ingredients and products come from all over the world. Biologics — such as recombinant therapeutic proteins, vaccines, blood components, tissues, cell and gene therapies — are growing faster than any other segment of medicine. Just as they do for small molecule chemical medicines, manufacturers must ensure the purity and quality of the biologics that make their way to patients. USP’s quality standards serve as the foundation for a robust safety network that assists manufacturers by increasing predictability and reliability and preserving the integrity of the global supply chain.
This individual will have the responsibility of understanding the complex global biologics landscape from a customer, regulatory, and policy point of view. A high premium will be placed on the ability to lead collaborative efforts necessary to increase the overall awareness of USP-biologics among key customers and stakeholders.
