Certara Scientists to Present Their Latest Modeling and Simulation Advances at 2019 AAPS PharmSci 360

November 4, 2019

Certara will host two Phoenix WinNonlin™ Lunch and Learns and also lead 18 workshop, presentation and poster sessions on model-informed drug development

 

PRINCETON, NJ – Nov. 4, 2019 – Certara®, the global model-informed drug development and decision support leader, today announced that its scientists will lead 20 sessions at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists’ (AAPS’) Annual Meeting – 2019 AAPS PharmSci 360. This year’s conference will be held from Nov. 3-6 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

“This is such an exciting time to be working in model-informed drug development,” said Certara Chief Scientific Officer Professor Amin Rostami. “More than 90% of novel new drug approvals by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are supported by Certara software or services. Our physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Simcyp Simulator has been used to inform drug label claims – removing the need for specific clinical investigation – for more than 50 new drugs approved by FDA and applications for the technology continue to grow. For example, earlier this year, the Simcyp Simulator was used to demonstrate bioequivalence for the FDA approval of a complex generic drug on its abbreviated new drug application pathway. We are looking forward to sharing both our latest research and great enthusiasm for this rapidly-evolving field with fellow scientists at PharmSci 360.”

AAPS is also introducing a new event – Special Poster Collections – at this year’s conference. AAPS leaders reviewed the top poster abstracts submitted for PharmSci 360 and chose those that they were most excited to see for inclusion in the high-profile collections. Nathalie Rioux’s poster (M1430-09-58) was selected for that honor.
