Mark your calendars: November 3-5. The 2015 PPAR meeting will be hosted by Genentech at the South San Francisco, CA location. The planning committee is preparing a PAT agenda that is engaging, allows sharing of experiences, and offers the possibility to continue influencing the industry in an informal discussion format.

This meeting offers a chance to interact with other colleagues, discuss best practices, learn new technologies, and identify common needs. PPAR is not a standard conference, but is instead an interactive, informal discussion of the current state and future direction of PAT. The roundtable forum gives a group of approximately 30 participants the opportunity to discuss these important topics in a more informal environment than is generally encountered at conferences. There are no formal presentations, although participants may be asked to give a short topic introduction to kick off various discussion sessions.
