Sir M Visvesvaraya Institute of Technology
Last date to register:- 31 October 2011
Start on :- 4 November 2011

Biopharmaceuticals are defined as pharmaceuticals manufactured by biotechnology methods, with the products having biological sources, usually involving live organisms or their active components. This includes all recombinant proteins, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, blood/plasma-derived products, non -recombinant culture-derived proteins, and cultured cells and tissues. The pharmaceutical industry has transformed itself into the biopharmaceutical industry as a result of the \"convergence\" of biotechnology and pharmaceutical technologies. The pharmaceutical industry, through adoption of new technologies and close relationships with biotech companies, has undergone a fundamental change resulting in new, revolutionary technologies. Biopharmaceuticals are no longer a subset of pharmaceuticals, with biopharmaceuticals now taking in all pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, with a health care orientation.

The health care industry is one of the world\'s largest and fastest-growing industries. Combining medical technology and the human touch, the healthcare industry diagnoses, treats, and administers care around the clock, responding to the immediate needs and requirements. The delivery of health care services is the most visible part of any health care system, both to users and the general public. Improving access, coverage and quality of health services depends on how the services are organized and managed, and on the incentives influencing providers and users. Healthcare is literally of vital importance, and requires understanding of ethical and social as well as financial issues; yet healthcare is in great need of sensible economic policies to achieve value for money.

This congregation attempts to gather the leaders and stakeholders of these progressive fields, including venture capitalists, scientists, academicians, researchers, students and most importantly, the general public. The platform aims to update, discuss, network and exchange stimulating ideas on the most recent achievements in the different topics of Biopharmaceuticals & Healthcare. Through this conference we hope to achieve closer links/collaboration between scientists and engineers. We also aim at educating the general public and taking the fruits of research from lab level and realizing their potential benefits to society.
