speaker panel addressing participants in classroom

Regulatory and development experts will engage with participants at this special one day pediatric workshop to acknowledge the unique challenges of pediatric drug development with focus on hot topics for successful pediatric drug development. This workshop will highlight innovative perspectives from top pediatric thought leaders in areas of toxicology, formulation, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, biostatistics, extrapolation, safety, regulation and operations. In addition, Dr. Lynne Yao, Director of the Division of the Pediatric and Maternal Health at US Food and Drug Administration, will give a “future horizons” keynote talk. This pediatric-focused workshop is open to interested professionals, particularly the medical product developer, reviewer, clinician, scientist, trialist, investor or payer who seeks a survey of innovative pediatric drug development reaching beyond the boundaries of traditional pharmaceuticals. It would be especially valuable to those who plan careers in the field or who work in pediatric drug development.
