Moderated by Early Career Community member Emily Cicali, PharmD (University of Florida), Patrick Smith, PharmD (Certara) discusses the risks and rewards with entrepreneurship in the field of clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics. Patrick talks honestly about the mistakes made early on and the differing needs of team members who are starting a business in varying stages of life.
“As we grew, we slowly came to realize there is a huge need for clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics in the industry, particularly in the biotech sector where it’s a function that they typically choose not to have in house but to outsource and really need the guidance to apply this model-informed drug development paradigm to their development programs.”

“I think the best start-ups are starting in the basement.”
