We are delighted to announce the 6th annual Pre-Filled Syringes West Coast conference, to be held in San Diego. As part of our leading series of drug delivery device conferences, the 2022 event will provide insights into the rapidly accelerating market of combination product development with industry, device developer and regulatory perspectives.

This upcoming conference will assess the industry movement towards enabling self-administration through advanced user centric device design with case studies from AstraZeneca, Genentech and AbbVie exploring human factors approaches for injectable drug delivery systems. Innovations in on body injectors for large volume delivery and the use of connected features to aid user experience will be explored as part of two interactive panel discussions. Furthermore, industry experts will assess evolving approaches to lifecycle management for enhanced device development and discuss guidance for understanding essential performance requirements for combination products. As we look to the future, this year's conference will also delve into the evolution towards sustainable approaches for injectable device development through industry case study examples.

This two-day agenda offers you peer-to-peer networking with Global Product Managers, Senior PFS Engineers, Device Testing Managers, Heads of Late-Stage PFS Development and many more.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference in June.
