Date: June 12, 2018

Location: Houston, TX

Making the right choices is important in today’s R&D environment, especially considering the various pressures on developers such as time, resources, and funding. Short term thinking can lead to long term problems leading to missed timelines, escalating costs, and even regulatory issues in later phases. These factors can unfortunately contribute to non-optimal drug products unless they are addressed upfront and incorporate patient focused design principles to promote better drug performance and patient outcomes.

This event will focus on key considerations for developing the best biologics therapeutics:
•        Avoiding the biggest pitfalls in drug development
•        Incorporating patient considerations in designing a drug product
•        Latest trends and technologies for biologics therapeutics
