Speakers | Tim Phillips, Principal Human Factors Expert, Cambridge Consultants  

The R&D pipeline across the biopharma industry is diversifying at a rapid pace with new modalities and new classes of drugs becoming a significant part of their overall research strategy. Increasingly we are observing a need for delivering drugs locally in difficult-to-access anatomy such as heart, brain, spine, and kidneys across different therapeutic areas including oncology, CNS, autoimmune and a number of rare diseases. The preference will always be to deliver these drugs with a minimally invasive approach. Our team evaluated the challenges involved in developing device technologies and new procedures for delivering such complex drugs localized to organs, tumors or tissues and developed innovative ideas and concepts that could be deployed in specific situations. This talk will focus on a few select ideas and our thought process in the design and development of such delivery platforms and procedures.
