Overview of Webinar:
Over the last 20 years Physiologically - Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Modelling and Simulation has developed and is now used extensively within Discovery and Development in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Its adoption has been driven by the availability of commercial software platforms and a realisation of the benefits to be gained including the potential to reduce the number of in vivo studies performed.This webinar will cover an introduction to PBPK modelling, what it is and how it can be applied to support Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) development.It will provide an overview of usage in oral, small molecule development, supported by examples from the areas of biopharmaceutics and formulation development. Current and potential future applications of PBPK modelling in Quality and Regulatory fields will also be discussed.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
1. Understand the definition of a Physiologically - Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model.
2. Demonstrate an awareness of how PBPK models can be used.
3. Appreciate the benefits and challenges in applying PBPK models in CMC areas.
About the Speaker:
Dr Jonathan Brown graduated in Pharmacy from University of Nottingham and is a registered UK pharmacist. He gained a PhD in Drug Delivery from the University of Manchester and subsequently joined Bristol-Myers Squibb.
