Right from the start - the importance of regulatory for life science start-ups

June 29, 2021 — June 29, 2021 / 4:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Anyone who wants to get their products approved has to take many different aspects into account. This requires a precise knowledge of the requirements for a drug (and medical device) dossier. For example, in the quality area, the time to market is significantly shortened if the approval requirements are taken into account right from the start in quality-relevant documents. Regulatory requirements must also be taken into account urgently in non-clinical and clinical studies in order to avoid additional demands from the authorities.

In addition, there are other regulatory requirements, such as manufacturing authorization, wholesale authorization and quality management system, without which no market entry is possible.

The aim of the event is to consider approval-related issues in your product planning. Often, requirements can be defined on a product-specific basis to avoid unnecessary detours.

About the speaker:

Margret Irmgard Moré, Ph. D. is currently self-employed in the field of regulatory affairs, consulting and medical writing, providing support and assistance to pharmaceutical clients in their diverse projects. She draws on many years of professional experience as a senior consultant in the pharmaceutical field and as a regulatory affairs manager for the Berlin-based start-up DendroPharm GmbH, which has already made a name for itself in the field of innovative dendritic nano-polymer excipients and is working on various drug approvals.

We look forward to discussing the regulatory hurdles for new drugs (and medical devices). Ms. Moré will have ample time for individual questions following her presentation.
