IMAPAC's 3rd Biologics Korea Gathering to Bring Together Over 150 Leading Industry Players

With support from the Korean Biologics Manufacturers Association (KPMA), IMAPAC will organize the 3rd Annual Biologics World Korea 2014 conference to take place from 22-24 April 2014, in Seoul, Korea.

Singapore (I-Newswire) February 19, 2014 - For the third consecutive year, IMAPAC will bring together players from the Korean and international biologics and biosimilars industry at the region's MOST TARGETED biologics and biosimilars platform - 3rd Annual Biologics World Korea 2014 - taking place from 22-24 April 2014 in Seoul, Korea.

The biologics landscape in South Korea is evolving fast, but although the Korean government has made a number of investments to support the local biologics industry, players have mainly focused on biosimilar drugs. The subject in question now is whether or not Korea can successfully transition from biosimilars to innovative biologics. Although their strong base in biosimilars capabilities can provide a solid technical foundation, there are many aspects of the innovative RnD market that will not develop without focused attention.

"I strongly believe that Korea biotech industry will move forward fast to become a global CMO hub which results in manufacture of own products later," says Dr. YongJick Kim, Consultant and Former President, Manufacturing and Technical Operations, Celltrion, Korea, who will be speaking at the Biologics World Korea 2014 event on overcoming current manufacturing challenges, ensuring sustainable growth, and overcoming competition from neighbouring countries.

In recognition of current market needs, and different information and the knowledge requirements of players from various biologic backgrounds, Biologics World Korea 2014 will feature 4 separate conferences focused on Biosimilars and Biobetters, BioProcessing, BioAnalytical andBioPartnerships. Each conference will cover specific domain knowledge to stimulate direct relevance, practicality and problem solving.
