Developing a culture of quality: from early development of novel therapeutics to market
October 26 @ 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Many innovative ideas for novel therapeutics come out of academia. While these small companies are generally founded on scientifically sound principles, they often lack the experience, especially with regards to quality systems, needed to translate their ideas into viable product candidates. This lack of experience often results in delays, or even failures, in development.
US Pharmacopeia (USP), an independent scientific organization that collaborates with the world’s top experts in health and science to develop quality standards for medicines, will host a panel discussion on challenges faced by developers of novel therapeutics. Experts will discuss how to develop a culture of quality necessary to translate scientific ideas into actual product development programs and recommend best practices to accelerate success.
