“Don’t Leave Money On The Table”- Catalent Experts To Present Collaborative Product Development At Annual Eptm Conference

Somerset, NJ – September 11, 2013

Dr. Cornell Stamoran, Founding Board Member of the Catalent Applied Drug Delivery Institute and Terry Robinson, Executive Director of the Institute, are to present at the 52nd Annual Eastern Pharmaceutical Technology Meeting (EPTM).

Dr. Stamoran’s presentation is titled “Don’t Leave Money on the Table:  Collaborative Product Development for Better Patient Outcomes,” and will highlight payer/physician/patient perspectives on how dose form design and dosing regimen complexity impact patient outcomes and market uptake. The session will include real world examples of optimization, and describe how collaboration with both drug delivery providers and academia at an early stage of development may yield better R&D returns on investment and reduce clinical and market uptake risk.

Ms. Robinson will follow Dr. Stamoran’s presentation, and will focus on “The Catalent Applied Drug Delivery Institute: Building Bridges for Better Patient Outcomes.”

The conference’s central theme is “The Future of Pharmaceutical Business-Academic-Industry Collaboration for Better Innovation,” and takes place in Basking Ridge, NJ, on Friday, September 20th 2013.

Dr. Stamoran has spent nearly 25 years engaged with the healthcare industry, and has experienced the realities of patient adherence and outcomes enhancement from almost every stakeholder perspective: from direct engagement with retail and hospital pharmacists; medical professionals; specialty pharmacies and clinics; and pharmacy benefit managers and payers. He has directly participated in adherence and outcomes enhancement strategies for more than 150 drugs over the last 10 years.

Ms. Robinson is responsible for establishing industry relations, academic programs, education and technology development. Ms. Robinson has over 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical strategy, development and account management.
