DCAT Lunch Seminar: Strategies for Achieving Regulatory Milestones Faster | New York, NY

22 March 2023

Interested in achieving your regulatory milestones faster? Join Quotient Sciences & Ensysce Biosciences for an exclusive customer case study lunch seminar during DCAT Week in NYC.

Presentation Overview

Many pharma and biotech companies are seeking new ways of making drug development more efficient and cost-effective in order to achieve their regulatory milestones faster. To meet this demand, the outsourcing services sector has scaled and grown, but in doing so, has become more siloed, with separate vendors each handling different activities – from medicinal chemistry, to preclinical studies, to clinical research, to product development and manufacturing. This separation has created a more complex approach to drug development for sponsor companies, where there is a distinct lack of communication between the multiple vendors working on a particular drug molecule, leading to delayed timelines, increased risk and higher costs.  

Quotient Sciences' Head of Early Development & Late-Stage Commercial, Dr. Sarah Stevens, will be joined by our customer Lynn Kirkpatrick, CEO of Ensysce Biosciences, to discuss the benefits of using Quotient Sciences integrated drug development platform, Translational Pharmaceutics® to accelerate their development timeline.  Translational Pharmaceutics® integrates drug substance, drug product, and clinical testing activities under a single program manager and single company to streamline drug development activities.

Hear Lynn's first hand experience working with Quotient Sciences and utilizing Translational Pharmaceutics for their PF14-MPAR program. She will touch on why Ensysce selected Quotient Sciences as their outsourcing partner, provide an overview of their project scope, and discuss how Translational Pharmaceutics was employed to help support their corporate goals. PF614-MPAR, which is currently in Phase 1, is a novel opioid combination product for the potential treatment of chronic pain that is designed to prevent both abuse and overdose.  Quotient Sciences has supported Ensysce by providing an integrated formulation development and phase 1 clinical study program for PF614.
