37th International Good Manufacturing Practices Conference

The 37th International Good Manufacturing Practices Conference will feature many outstanding speakers from government and industry. They will focus on current topics that are critical to GMP compliance. This GMP conference is solely sponsored by the Food and Drug Administration and the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy. The conference is educational and ample time will be provided for questions and answers. Attendees will obtain valuable information that can be applied to company operations. Don't miss your chance to attend this outstanding conference which was "sold out" last year. We look forward to seeing you in Athens, Georgia, next March.
