PPD Network at Pharmadanmark aspires to become a neutral arena to share ideas, identify new directions for innovative research, and discuss regulatory challenges related to future pharmaceuticals.
The vision of the Pharmaceutical Product Design (PPD) network is to exchange knowledge about current development in research among professionals working within the field of pharmaceutical product design including medical devices. Additionally, the group actively works to increase collaboration between academia, regulatory, and industry professionals by arranging network events with participation from all parties. Chaired by Kaisa Naelapää (PhD) from Novo Nordisk A/S, the steering committee of the PPD network consists of members representing pharmaceutical and medical device industries, academia as well as students from related educational programs.
Although members within the steering committee have diverse professional aspirations, they all share the PPDs’ vision of promoting collaboration and communication between industry, regulatory and academia.
The steering committee is constituted by Kaisa Naelapää, Novo Nordisk A/S Jukka Rantanen, University of Copenhagen Jian Xiong Wu, Pfizer A/S Rasmus Herschend, Novo Nordisk A/S Troels Pedersen, University of Copenhagen/H. Lundbeck A/S Søren Vinter Søgaard, University of Copenhagen/H. Lundbeck A/S The PPD plans to arrange network events highlighting the latest innovative approaches within pharmaceutical product and device design and their potential applications.
We also focus on creating an informal platform, where the ideas and innovation generated in academia can be evaluated for their application potential in the industry and vice versa. Our aim is to create a platform for future collaboration possibilities and initiating a closer dialogue between academia and industry, as well as regulatory professionals. All events organized will be in English.
