About the Topic

My talk will focus on the importance of form selection and its impact on formulation development of new chemical entities. Gathering and interpreting physical/chemical characteristics on different forms of NCEs can provide valuable insights on the developability of a particular molecule. This information can be utilized to choose the form with the highest likelihood of success from a formulation development perspective. These characteristics can also provide an early clue on the formulation techniques that will need to be used to produce a drug product that meets the need of a target product profile.

About the Speakers

Scott Stirn

I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Chemistry and I am on track to receive my M.S.J. in Intellectual Property from Seton Hall Law School in May. I started my career at Arena Pharmaceuticals where I worked in the preformulation group under a PhD crystallographer for six years. I focused on form selection through salt/co-crystal screening and physical characterization. After Arena I worked at a small start-up company named NexBio Inc. where I helped develop a lyophilization technology that created microshperes to enabled high-concentration drug loads for injectable formulations of monoclonal antibodies. I moved on to Celgene where I continued to work on mAb formulations and also worked in the prep-HPLC group where we isolated targeted small molecules through prep-HPLC techniques. I established a material science group for Celgene's San Diego site that helped medicinal chemist optimize form selection of their lead compounds. In 2013 I took a job at Pharmatek Laboratories, Inc. where I created a preformulation group that managed many different projects supporting injectable, opthalmic, and oral clinical drug candidates from clients in the pharmaceutical industry. Finally, I was hired by Neurocrine Biosciences in the beginning of 2016 to develop a preformulation and material science group to support all preclinical and clinical projects. I am currently the Director of the Preformulation and Material Science group.
