Careers Beyond Academia

Designing experiments in industry can differ substantially from academic research. For example, there is often not enough time, money, or resources to test all of the variables in a system. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Geoffrey Hird and Dr. Christina Hofmann will walk participants through the experimental design process they use at Liquidia Technologies when engineering drug particles to transform the lives of patients. Attendees will learn about product development, quality by design, factorial designs, and other principles that industry scientists use. A hands-on activity will also provide an opportunity for participants to apply these principles to an experimental system.

About the speakers: Geoffrey Hird, PhD, is a Duke alum (PhD '01, Chemistry) who is currently the Executive Director of Pharmaceutics and CMC at Liquidia Technologies. He has previous experience at Eisai and Stiefel (a GSK company). Christina Hofmann, PhD, is also a Duke alum (PhD '15, Biomedical Engineering) who is currently a Senior Scientist in Pharmaceutical Development at Liquidia Technologies.
