Event Overview:

The regulatory landscape for bioequivalence continues to evolve, leveraging a broader suite of characterization techniques. These not only provide deeper product understanding, but also utility for generic product development as the potential for replacement of costly clinical studies becomes more of a reality. In addition, a holistic approach to product/device design is critical to the success of a generic product. This presentation will outline considerations for product design and characterization.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the current and evolving regulatory pathways
  • Learn about product/device design considerations for generic products
  • Identify tools and resources that support product-specific characterization

Who Should Attend:

  • VPs of R&D within small to mid-sized pharma companies
  • Senior scientists within small to mid-sized pharma companies
  • C-Suite executives/CTOs/CMOs/CEOs/CSOs within small to mid sized pharma companies
