Cell based proteolytic activity assays and their application in drug discovery application of Project Management by Dr. Julia M Coppola, PhD, MBA: Director of Operations, United States Air Force Reserve

The PMI Atlanta announces a new forum for 2018 - Clinical Research Forum. Join us in the 1st Quarter as we launch this exciting new forum in Marietta! 

Presentation

Proteolytic activity is vital to organism homeostasis. Perturbations in host protease activity can be debilitating and result in pathological conditions. Proteolytic activity is also required for pathogenesis of viral and bacterial Coppola-Juliadiseases. Thus, developing protease inhibitors as therapeutic agents is an active area of investigation. Development of cell-based assays to monitor proteolytic activity permits assessment of function within the context of the cell and enables identification of activity modulators, pointing to compounds that may serve as potential pharmaceutical agents.

From the past, pharmaceutical companies have been an example of integration from Drug Discovery through Sales, regardless of size or capabilities, affording the complete chain value of its products. Everything it needed to survive it carried out for itself. The continuous pressure to increase pharmaceutical productivity and competitive advantages, is transforming the business structure with external connections of added value. Therefore a net of operational, technical and administrative external stakeholders appears as a complex influence along the long path

How can projects be guided with success to the same objective according to these different supporting structures? Pharma management models can adopt multiple solutions depending on company size, business strategies and affordable goals according to the scope of the project and portfolio, with common tools to be used, but different dimensions in its application.

Jones-David"Georgia Power's Vogtle 3 and 4 Update" presented by David Jones, Southern Nuclear

Project managers will get an opportunity to learn first-hand what it takes to run a project for the only nuclear power plant units under construction in the U.S., Georgia Power’s Vogtle 3 and 4. The $25 billion project is expected to deliver clean, sustainable energy and promises to shape the future of the nation's nuclear industry, partly because the reactors are the first new ones to be licensed and to begin construction in the U.S. since 1978. They were originally approved in 2012 at an estimated $14 billion, but endured licensing delays and cost overruns that nearly killed the project. In December 2017, the Georgia Public Service commission gave the green-light to proceed. What has happened and where is the project now? Project executive David Jones will bring an update to project managers on the incredible journey of this much anticipated project.
