Submitted by Communications and Marketing

The next presentation in Kansas State University's Animal Health Corridor Lecture Series, "The Quality Unit and Its Relationship to Evolving FDA and USDA Regulations," will be at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 19, on the university's Olathe campus, 22201 W. Innovation Drive.

"There are many new and upcoming FDA and USDA regulations that industry professionals in the corridor need to understand in order to effectively manage quality in biologics and pharmaceuticals," said Jim McCord, a veterinarian and quality director at Ceva Biomune. "This seminar will explore questions and issues surrounding the interface of quality assurance and regulatory affairs, both in these national agencies and in international arenas."

McCord and Miguel A. de Soto-Perera, director, managing consultant at Beckloff Associates Inc., a Cardinal Health Company, will share their perspectives and expertise on these topics as featured speakers.

Interested participants should register by Tuesday, July 10. Tickets are $50 per person and cover the seminar and lunch. Group rates are available. For more information or to RSVP, visit http://www.ageconomics.k-state.edu/outreach or contact Kara Ross at 785-532-3526 or kross@agecon.k-state.edu.
