Xtalks Life Science Webinars

This webinar will appeal to individuals working at companies with molecules in late Phase 1 or Phase 2, or in need of advanced dose form for life cycle management purposes.

In 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released updated guidelines on drug development. That same year, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) also took the initiative to implement additional regulations supporting drug development in Europe. Since the release of these guidelines, overlooking factors such as acceptability, excipient considerations and caregiver instructions are no longer an option.

On Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK), join Matt Ling, Ph. D., Director of Scientific Services, at Catalent and Rachel Meyers, Pharm D., BCPS, BCPPS, FPPA, Clinical Associate Professor at Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, Rutgers University and Pediatric Clinical Pharmacist, Saint Barnabas Medical Center for a live webinar where they will discuss:

  • The impact of age-appropriate dose forms for pediatrics
  • Insights into caregiver perspectives
  • A case study on real-world medications and acceptability assessment
  • Solutions that address the challenges of pediatric drug development
  • Factors in excipient decision-making
  • Technologies for creating ideal dose forms

This webinar will appeal to individuals working at companies with molecules in late Phase 1 or Phase 2, or in need of advanced dose form for life cycle management purposes.

A live Q&A session with the speakers will follow the presentation.
Dr. Matt Ling has over 20 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry, much of this gained in big pharma, with roles in analytical, formulation development, advanced drug delivery and project leadership spanning all phases of discovery and development.

Dr. Meyers provides both didactic and experiential education in pediatric pharmacotherapy for pharmacy students and residents in her current position at Rutgers. She practices in the pediatric intensive care unit and the general pediatric unit at Saint Barnabas Medical Center.
