DO THE APPROPRIATE SCIENCE, TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, TO DRIVE THE PROJECT, TO MEET THE BUSINESS NEEDS!
This is the focus of Rheology Testing Services and Pharma Developability Solutions Consulting, LLC and. I am a Ph.D. scientist, technical manager, consultant, and mentor with 30 years experience serving large and start-up pharmaceutical R&D organizations in a GMP/GLP environment.
I own Rheology Testing Services (www.rheologytestingservices.com) offering basic comparative screening to comprehensive characterization for solutions, suspensions, emulsions, oils, creams, lotions, ointments, and other semi-solids for the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical (esp topical, dermatology, intravenous, subcutaneous), and chemical industries to quickly and quantitatively model real life applications under highly defined and controlled conditions. Outputs from these tests may provide better insight into process development and in-process controls for manufacturing, as well as product packaging, handling, performance, efficacy, and sensory attributes.
I also work with analytical and formulation teams to identify and address technical gaps, challenges, and strategies to bridge drug discovery and pharmaceutical development efforts to establish a firm technical foundation leading to more likely positive outcomes for Safety Assessment, Phase I clinical trials, and beyond. Getting it right in the early stages of the development process is not nearly as costly and painful as having to delay, repeat, and explain later!
I welcome an opportunity to assist your organization to deliver more optimized, scientifically based infrastructure, processes, and products to your pipeline. The earlier in the process the better!
