The Animal Pharmaceutics and Technology focus group is the only group within AAPS focused on the development and continuing education for professionals in the animal health industry. This focus group is for colleagues interested in or involved in the veterinary pharmaceuticals field and those who use animal models in the development of human drug products. Our membership—which includes participants from academia, industry, and regulatory authorities—spans many technical disciplines including analytical, pharmaceutics, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics, pharmacology, regulatory, etc. Our primary goals include developing programming focused on the special interests of animal health colleagues and educating the global animal health industry to propagate talent flow. We actively seek member support and encourage members to network with each for an ongoing learning and supportive environment.
- Explore the pharmaceutical, biological, regulatory, and medical issues associated with drug development in veterinary medicine.
- Facilitate the exchange of information regarding current and future technologies as they apply to animal use in drug development.
- Develop the relationship between veterinary and human health development by identifying synergistic opportunities for cross learning and providing the forum for discussion.
