SMi’s HPAPI 2018 Conference: Exclusive Interview Released

SMi are delighted to have our Chairman, Speaker and Workshop Host, Justin Mason-Home, Director, HPAPI Project Services Limited, onto the speaker panel for HPAPI 2018!

About Justin:

Justin Mason-Home is an organic chemist with extensive health, safety, environmental and chemical engineering experience in senior technical, legal and commercial aspects of the pharmaceutical, biochemical, chemical and other industries. He has held senior positions and worked globally in potent biopharmaceutical occupational health and safety global environmental consulting, board level positions in a biotechnology company and corporate environmental management. Justin has worked on multiple ADC projects and specialises in technical complex and strategic projects, including unique experience in managing sensitive highly potent and toxic biopharmaceutical compound matters.

SMi are excited to have interviewed Justin about his talk and career experience.

Below is a snapshot of the interview:

Q. How is your organisation involved in Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients?
A. "HPAPI Project Services Limited supports (bio)pharma companies in designing and delivering all the occupational health and safety elements in potent and high potent API projects on a scientific and systematic basis. Maybe the highest value area is in conceptual and detailed design as project capital costs are high and errors at this stage can be expensive and long-lived. Another key area is training, from the senior management strategic level, to the operational worker level."

Q. What technology or platform updates have really caught your eye in the past couple of years?
A. "The two that spring to mind are the real rise of flexible containment over the last 5+ years and the move to health-based exposure determinations used for cross-contamination management - a real (r)evolution and a long overdue move to a more scientific and systematic approach."

Q. What are the future challenges for the advancement of HPAPIs and what do you think are the biggest hindrances to achieving the utmost therapeutic potential of HPAPIs?
A. "I don’t think that there are any unsurmountable hindrances to developing the therapeutic potential of HPAPIs. Look at ADCs, highly potent APIs that previously were too toxic (including too narrow a therapeutic window) have been reborn when used in a much lower but highly targeted manner. You could not get a better example than Pfizer’s Mylotarg which has recently come back on the market after it was withdrawn in 2010 after patient toxicity concerns."

Q. Which markets are you looking to collaborate with in the future?

Justin will be hosting a half day post conference workshop on Wednesday 23rd May, where he will present 'Practical Steps for Delivering HPAPI Projects.'

Why Attend:

Learn key HPAPI project elements, what factors are important and how to build information designed to underpin HPAPI project investments. All too often companies and their advisors, design and deliver HPAPI facilities based on “emotion” and guesswork. This workshop will try to ditch the emotion and provide a pathway to systematic and scientific project design.
