Seminar DescriptionAgendaSpeakerPricingVenue

Solid oral dosage forms are the most popular and convenient type of medicinal product. This workshop deals with the important steps in developing these types of drug products, from the pre-clinical stage to regulatory approval. The topics covered include the goals of the development project, organization of the drug development team, formulation/process development, analytical controls, stability evaluation and establishing bioequivalence. The course material will include examples of common pitfalls, reasons for delay/rejection of regulatory submissions and a way of evaluating which risks to accept and which to control during development. The aim of the workshop is to equip delegates with the necessary knowledge to take scientifically sound decisions during the development process, with the aim of reducing cost and timelines.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to address the needs of a regulatory submission during the drug development process
  • Appreciate the importance of controlling drug substance and excipient quality during development
  • How to evaluate risks to bioequivalence based on biopharmaceutic and pharmacokinetic knowledge
  • How to set drug product specifications at each phase of the project and support them with appropriately-validated analytical methods
  • Understand options available to improve drug product shelf-life through choice of appropriate primary packaging
  • Appreciate options for demonstrating bioequivalence, including biowaivers

Who Should Attend:

The workshop is aimed at employees of drug development companies who would like to gain an understanding of the drug development process, including professionals working in:

  • Quality Control Departments
  • Quality Assurance Departments
  • Regulatory Departments
  • Analytical Development
  • Formulation Development
  • Production Departments

Dr. Mark Powell

Dr. Mark Powell set up Mark Powell Scientific Limited to provide technical support for pre-clinical drug development, which may involve short-term help with specific problems or management of the analytical aspects of a development project, for new or existing compounds, as part of a multi-disciplinary team. He has an expertise in analytical method development and validation (including assay of impurities), design of stability testing studies and auditing of contract laboratories. Mark is also an experienced quality auditor, and can perform GMP audits of contract laboratories, including evaluation of compliance with data integrity requirements.

He also provides training services, which are accredited by the UK’s vocational skills agency, Cogent SSC, and are designed to ensure that analysts have the necessary theoretical and practical skills to perform their jobs competently. As well as courses in instrumental chemical analysis, He also provides training in basic laboratory skills and technical writing (analytical methods, SOPs and technical reports). Mark has recently been working with Spectroscopy Magazine to write and deliver an on-line training course in UV spectroscopy and has also been asked to provide training on behalf of the chromatography consumable company Hichrom.
