Optimization Of Early Stage Oral Dosing And Drug Development To Be Presented At Upcoming Medicinal Chemistry Ireland Conference By Catalent Expert

Somerset, N.J. – June 29, 2016 — Catalent Pharma Solutions, the leading global provider of advanced delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics and consumer health products, today announced that Dr. Pascale Clement, Director of Science and Technology, will be presenting at the upcoming inaugural Medicinal Chemistry Ireland Conference, to be held at Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, on July 1st, 2016.

Dr. Clement’s presentation, at 11.30 a.m., is entitled “Accelerating Oral Drug Development Through Systematic Early Technology Selection,” and will discuss the oral drug development challenges facing the industry, and the benefits of accurate, early stage assessment of compounds’ physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties to the selection of the right drug candidate form and enabling drug product’s technology.  Along with demonstrative case studies, she will discuss, the advantages of combining reliable data and a suite of technologies that can optimize bioavailability leading to pharmacologically effective and developable candidates entering the clinic, and ultimately the market, faster.

Dr. Clement joined Catalent in January 2016 as the Director of Science and Technology, bringing extensive experience in pharmaceutical development of multiple dosage forms for NCEs and generic pharmaceutical products. In her role, she is part of the scientific leadership team within Catalent, responsible for its OptiForm® Solution Suite bioavailability enhancement platform, and softgel development for the European market. OptiForm Solution Suite was launched in 2015 to identify the most stable and efficient drug form for small molecules, and it was announced earlier this month that the scope of the platform has now been expanded to encompass macromolecules.

Dr. Clement has over 20 years of formulation and development experience, and has previously held a number of roles at companies including Skyepharma and Pharmascience in Canada, and at HWI Analytik (Germany), where she led a project management and pharmaceutical development team. She holds a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Paris XI University.
