delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics and consumer health products, today announced that it will host a roundtable session at the World Orphan Drug Congress which takes place at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel, Oxon Hill, Maryland, on April 10-12, 2019.

On Thursday, April 11 at 3:30 p.m., Matthew Mollan, Ph.D., General Manager of Catalent's Kansas City, Missouri facility and Jim Spavins, retired Senior Vice President of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Pfizer, will discuss orphan drug supply during a roundtable session. Titled "Planning for Orphan Drug Supply: The Importance of Manufacturability", the roundtable will be moderated by Cornell Stamoran, Ph.D., Catalent's Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development and Co-chair of the Catalent Applied Drug Delivery Institute. The session will include a discussion around the accelerated approval pathways that are often associated with orphan drugs in the U.S. and Europe. It will also explore the unique challenges that orphan drugs bring to development, to the clinic, and to scaling up for commercial supply, and discuss the importance of druggability, manufacturability, and patient usage for orphan product success.

Prior to joining Catalent, he was Director of Research Formulations at Pfizer.
