Dr. Anderson will answer questions that a scale-up organization must always ask, such as:
- How much material is needed?
- How soon?
- For what purpose?
Anderson will address principles of process development such as safety; controlling impurities; efficiency; and partnership among organic chemists, chemical engineers, analysts, and regulatory staff. He will also give best practices to prevent key issues that most scale-up organizations encounter along the process as well as address forming a relationship with experts, especially for toxicology issues.

Dr. Anderson is an industry veteran. For the past 17 years Neal has consulted to the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries on chemical process research and development. He has presented short courses internationally on process R&D for "small molecules" to over 1400 participants from more than 160 companies. Keys to efficient scale-up are anticipating and then avoiding difficulties. Prior to consulting he worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb for 17 years. During that time, he had extensive hands-on experience with chemical process R&D in the lab, pilot plant, and manufacturing sites, including 12 manufacturing start-ups and process development for four major drugs.
