Standardizing Tech Transfer and Opportunities in Accelerating Drug Development Life Cycle

Standardizing Tech Transfer and Opportunities in Accelerating Drug Development Life Cycle

07/15/2020, 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

Innovation Stage, Booth 1281, Exhibit Hall
A new drug may cost billions of dollars and takes more than ten years to go through different phases in clinical trials and clinical manufacturing to eventually reach the market. Tech Transfer, which is the transition between the phases within the multi-phased pipeline, is a key factor in determining time-to-market, a top priority in pharmaceutical business. A holistic view from ISA point of view reveals obvious benefits of having a common platform for tech transfer. The current drug development pipeline in ISA view is at most fragmented and disconnected in many ways. These lead to obvious difficulties for tech transfer from phase to phase and represent significant opportunities for future improvement. Analysis of the pipeline in ISA context was provided and an approach of building a common platform throughout the phases was proposed and discussed.

  1. Objective 1. Why is tech transfer in drug development a key factor in drug development business? Why may tech transfer represent arguably the biggest opportunity in accelerating drug development pipeline? 2. How may QbD methodology and FDA process validation guideline be carried throughout the drug development pipeline? What are the modern automation standards for enterprises and how may they be applied to drug development business? 3. What are the additional pieces that will improve and complete current drug development pipeline? What are the strategies for reducing threshold of adopting automation in early phases in drug development?
