Dr. Ke Hong Senior Manager, Advanced Manufacturing Technology Team Dr. Ke Hong has 20 years of experience in Process Analytical Technology development and implementation. He joined Pfizer in 2000 as a Senior PAT Scientist and has since provided various PAT implementation support across the Pfizer Global manufacturing sites. He had led the development of PAT solutions in drug product area, working with instrument vendors to develop new generation of NIR spectrometers. In the past 7 years, Dr. Hong has been involved in the development of Advanced and Innovative Platform Technologies in Pfizer that use integrated Process Analytical Technology, advanced Process Models, Soft Sensors, Intelligent Process Monitoring and Real-time Control and Optimization strategies to optimize manufacturing performance, and process reliability across Pfizer Global Manufacturing Supply network. He was a major contributor for successfully implementing a real time PAT solution as part of a continuous process for drug product and also led the PAT implementation of an intelligent optimization system for drying process, resulting in a significant cost savings. Dr. Hong received his Ph.D. degree in Analytical Chemistry from the Center for Process Analytical Chemistry (CPAC) at the University of Washington in Seattle. His research work at CPAC focused on the development of fiber optic sensors for process analysis using Spectroscopy and Chemometrics. He started his industrial career at Hercules Inc. (formerly Betz Laboratory) working on process monitoring for industrial boilers, cooling towers, and wastewater treatment, where he co-authored three patents. Dr. Hong received his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and a Master’s degree in Polymer Science from Peking University in China.
