Webinar: The Faster Path to Market

SHL Group

On March 22, 2018, SHL Group will hold a live webinar to discuss how pharmaceutical companies can leverage a preconfigured device technology to bring their innovative drug formulations to market more efficiently.

The webinar, titled "The faster path to market: how pharma can benefit from using a robust and well-defined preconfigured drug delivery device," will be led by Dr. Thomas P. Schönknecht, executive director of business development at SHL Group.

With the increase in chronic diseases and the emergence of biological and biosimilar drug formulations, self-injection devices have continued to see strong and consistent growth. More and more pharmaceutical companies are thereby leveraging preconfigured offerings to increase efficiency, reduce costs and ultimately shorten time-to-market for their novel therapies.

In the webinar, Dr. Schönknecht will address this trend while exploring the challenges, opportunities and key traits of a successful preconfigured device. He will also look at the regulatory considerations that are required in order to support the approval as well as entire life-cycle of the drug product. Join Dr. Schönknecht to learn more about how to turn an innovative drug into a winning combination product.

Running Better Trials Taking an Intelligent Monitoring Approach


When it comes to implementing a risk-based monitoring program, it is not just about reducing monitoring visits and doing less Source Document Verification (SDV). It’s about bringing together your people, a solid process, and the right technology to run a better trial. Success with risk-based monitoring requires the ability to make sense of the thousands, if not millions, of data points captured by multiple disparate sources in a clinical trial. With the sheer volume of data generated on a daily basis comes complexity. How does one make sense of it all? Information overload burdens even the most experienced study teams who struggle to understand which data matters most and what it means.
