13th WRIB

While the 13th WRIB is bulit on its previous success and continues its well-established tradition to provide Novel Solutions in Drug Discovery/Development and promote Innovation in Method Development in Bioanalysis, Biomarkers and Immunogenicity, the 2019 edition will also have a very special focus on the ICH M10 Draft Bioanalytical Method Validation Guideline (expected issuance for public consultation: Jan. 2019). Let’s work altogether to provide official Recommendations to ICH in the 2019 White Paper in Bioanalysis!

What makes WRIB special?

In this busy and fast paced environment, it is great to attend a conference that organizes everything for you so all you need to do is to focus on your learning:

  • No need to rush at last minute to print speakers/course slides before you travel… At WRIB you’ll receive a program book with all the materials you need;
  • No need to take notes on a blank paper or on your computer/ipad… At WRIB you have the slides of all the speakers in the program book, so take your notes right on the slides where they belong to;
  • No need to look for which session to follow or scramble from one room to another to catch different speakers in multiple parallel session… At WRIB all sessions are sequential so just sit and relax enjoying the sessions with your coffee/tea
  • No need to run to look for a restaurant/cafe to eat breakfast or lunch… At WRIB, food and snacks and wine and beers are all included for you every single day so you can just focused on learning and networking
