Congratulations to Dr Marty Johnson of Lilly

Congratulations to Dr Marty Johnson of Lilly, Indianapolis on being this year's winner of AIChE's prize for Outstanding Contribution to Quality by Design for Drug Substance process development and manufacturing.

Marty's nomination was based on a very strong record of innovation and publication related to continuous manufacturing (CM) of active pharmaceutical ingredients and their intermediates, including:
  • being a driving force behind the pharmaceutical industry’s adoption of continuous processing
  • advocating how continuous processing can transform the quality, safety and cost profile of the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector
  • design of equipment platforms that are scalable and able to handle a range of process chemistries and conditions, and
  • more than 25 external publications including innovative ways to run chemistry, equipment characterization, reactor development, process modelling.
Scale-up Systems was delighted to be involved at the AIChE Annual Meeting this year in our continued sponsorship of this prize.  Marty stopped off in San Francisco en route to Asia to collect his award.  Photographs of the awards session will be available here soon.
