Somerset, N.J. – January 26, 2016 — Catalent Pharma Solutions (Booth 411), the leading global provider of advanced delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics, consumer health and animal health products, today announced that Dr. Elanor Pinto-Cocozza, Technical Project Manager, Catalent Micron Technologies, will be presenting at the upcoming InformEx Conference, to be held at the Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, LA., on February 2nd - 5th, 2016.
Dr. Pinto-Cocozza’s presentation, on Wednesday February 3rd, at 10.45 a.m., is entitled “How Preformulation and Formulation Development can Optimize API Properties for Better Drug Design,” and will discuss how accurate early stage prediction of compounds’ physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties can be beneficial in the selection of suitable technologies that optimize bioavailability, safety, and stability of any new chemical entity. The presentation will also demonstrate how working with development partners with expertise in preformulation and formulation development can facilitate successful and streamlined design of pharmacokinetic and efficacy/toxicity studies, leading to pharmacologically effective and developable candidates to reach the clinic, and ultimately the market, faster.
Dr. Pinto-Cocozza joined Catalent in November 2014, after its acquisition of Micron Technologies, and now serves as Catalent’s Global Scientific lead for particle size reduction services for its OptiForm® Solution Suite.
