Biotech companies that are interested in achieving greater efficiencies in product development and manufacturing processes are invited to an introductory briefing by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Quick Response Manufacturing on Wednesday, Aug. 18.

The “Introduction to Quick Response in Biotech” briefing, co-hosted by the center and the Office of Corporate Relations at UW-Madison, will be held from 9 a.m.-noon at the MG&E Innovation Center, 505 S. Rosa Road, in University Research Park. The Wisconsin Technology Council and the Wisconsin Biotechnology and Medical Device Association are co-sponsors.

The briefing will outline how strategies proven to be successful in
diverse manufacturing environments can help biotechnology companies and those related to the life sciences to reduce costs and lead times while improving quality, according to Frank Rath, associate director of the Center for Quick Response Manufacturing.

Biotech companies that are in the process of developing a product or a manufacturing process, as well as companies that are already involved in manufacturing, will benefit from the briefing, according to Allen Dines, assistant director of OCR.
