It is critical to understand the perspectives and key criteria of global regulatory agencies in the consideration of biowaivers, but many companies have knowledge gaps that hinder their success. They are uncertain how modeling and simulation can help them anticipate and answer questions in their regulatory submissions.

In this webinar, attendees will hear from experts working in regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical companies, sharing their experiences and insight about the use of PBPK/PBBM for achieving BCS class 3 biowaivers. They will discuss scientific and regulatory obstacles, and gaps in knowledge that challenge PBPK/PBBM modeling in these instances.

Attendees will also hear case studies that delineate potential paths forward on the use of PBPK/PBBM and risk assessment in support of BCS class 3 biowaivers.

A live Q&A will be held at the end of the presentation.
