Quality oversight of drugs throughout the product development lifecycle is complex, crosses many functions, and at times it can be challenging to communicate and manage the quality risks identified along the way. This short course takes you through the development of a cross functional quality strategy frame work in an R&D QA organization which, when implemented will coordinate, communicate, and manage quality risks along with business partners throughout the life of a drug product. Using a “Playbook and Game Plan” analogy, we will workshop real-life examples of the quality gates that a drug in development needs to pass through to assure confidence in the quality of the data for submission to regulatory agencies for approvals. The effect and value of this approach will be shown, revealing the positive impact on drug development and the potential for enhanced relationships with regulatory agencies. An additional registration fee is required for all preconference short courses.
