Welcome to Interphex 2024!

The organizers of Interphex continue to sell it as the bridge between science and business, and this year’s event, which returns to the banks of the Hudson River and the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, is expected to live up to that billing. With exhibitors and visitors invited to connect at the cutting edge of the pharmaceutical industry, a host of established speakers will impart their well-earned expertise.

As well as the usual trade show of equipment and services (featuring over 450 exhibitors and covering all stages of the pharmaceutical life cycle), Interphex also has something new for 2024: the Interphex conference – described by the organizers as a “transformative” event designed in collaboration with AAPS. Sessions will take place in the Learning Lab (but be aware that attendance is only for those who have registered for the conference). 

There are also Technical Theaters on the exhibition show floor, a networking lounge, and a special pavilion for emerging biotech and new technologies. 

Today's Must-See 

10:15 - 11:00 - Panel Discussion: Speed to Market - What Is "The Real Story" (conference: Stage 2; The Future is Now: Recent Advances in Sterile Product Manufacturing)

Four experts will discuss the “myths” about capital project schedules, and what can be done to reach operational readiness on time. 

15:30 - 15:45 - Campfire Discussion: FDA inspection 101 – Do’s and Don’ts (conference: Learning Lab)

Former FDA investigators provide a list of what to do before, during, and after an FDA inspection – to help you survive!

15:45 - 16:00 - Quick Fires: The Practical Aspects of AI in Pharmaceutical Development (Stage 1: Non-Sterile Product Development and Manufacturing)

A quick fire session on how AI is working behind the scenes to improve pharmaceutical science.

Tomorrow's Planner

Topics covered in tomorrow’s Interphex conference will include contamination control strategies for cell and gene facilities, continuous manufacturing, poor powder solubility, filter integrity testing, and biofilm remediation.  


A potential route upon egress from the convention center for the fans of the superhero comic book genre: head northbound on 11th into the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood on the west side of central Manhattan. The district (formerly known as Clinton) is the real world home of the Marvel Universe’s blind-but-super-sensory crime fighter, lawyer, and indestructible martial artist Matt Murdock (AKA DareDevil). But this is New York, where there is a little something for everybody. If vigilante lawyers are not your thing, you can find food from around the world, a vibrant nightlife scene, or a green and breezy walk along the Hudson River Greenway.

 Thought of the Day

With a number of sessions covering AI at Interphex this year, I’m reminded of an article written by Quin Wills, co-founder and CSO of COhre Bio: “A question dominating conversations around the future of drug development is whether artificial intelligence (AI) will prove itself to be a catalyst for better, cheaper, and faster R&D. Or will it remain in “hype and hot air” territory?”
