Join Sergey Arzhantsev, Ph.D., a research physicist working for CDER at the FDA, and Adrian Davis, PhD., the Data Integrity lead at Pfizer’s Pharmaceutical Sciences organisation, for a thought-provoking webinar on the subject of Data Integrity (DI). The goal of the webinar is to hold a high-level scientific discussion on the importance of DI within the pharmaceutical industry with views from the speakers on the overall trends relating to DI, for example:

  • What is the overall scope for DI in Pharma/Biopharma, and how does the speaker think that the scope is evolving?
  • Are there any major recent findings about the state of DI: are there any trends or emerging themes?
  • During product development, at what stage should DI become a significant focus of efforts; has that changed over the past few years?

Adrian Davis, Ph.D
Data Integrity Lead; Pfizer
Adrian Davis is a team leader and Research Fellow in Analytical R&D at Pfizer’s research laboratories in Sandwich, UK. He has over 25 yrs. of R&D experience, and in recent years has led Data integrity activities for Pfizer’s Pharmaceutical Sciences organization, focusing on the laboratory operations supporting clinical manufacturing activities. He’s also part of a strategic leadership group that is implementing Digital Transformation within the R&D environment and is very interested in technologies that help to simplify a very diverse laboratory data landscape. Fun fact: Adrian’s first professional lecture was at a Bruker NMR user meeting in the early 1990s, and he still remembers being so nervous that he couldn’t eat any of the lavish lunch that was provided!
