Mohnton, PA- October 28, 2020 – WAYS Pharmaceutical Services, the leading provider of regulatory submission management services for the life sciences industry, today announced the launch of the WAYS of WORKING Podcast. The podcast will be hosted by various WAYS team members and will cover a broad range of topics under the Regulatory umbrella.

WAYS is announcing the availability of the first podcast series titled, “Emergency Use Authorizations During the COVID-19 Pandemic.” In this podcast, the WAYS team speaks with Dr. Nancy Smerkanich, Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy. Dr. Smerkanich describes Emergency Use Authorizations, when they are used, and how they are being employed in the current pandemic.

Matt Stroschein, WAYS CEO, noted, “Our podcast program is an ideal channel for the WAYS team to provide valuable content to our colleagues. We are so excited to initiate the program with such an important and relevant topic. We are also very fortunate to be able to speak with Nancy and hear her analysis and insights.”

Because of the complexity and the dynamic nature of Emergency Use Authorizations in the current pandemic, the WAYS team continued the conversation with Dr. Smerkanich and created a series of podcasts. This approach supported an in-depth discussion of the topic while also affording the opportunity to share recent updates.

Nancy Smerkanich, Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy added, “Emergency Use Authorizations are in the headlines now because of the COVID-19 global health crisis. We can see the practical implications in real-time, as agencies and sponsors work to address the crisis. It has created a fascinating educational opportunity.”

The WAYS of WORKING Podcast can be found on the WAYS Pharmaceutical Services website. It is also available on Anchor.fmSpotify and other podcast platforms.

COMING SOON: The WAYS team is working on Part 3 of the series where we will get Dr. Smerkanich’s views on the recent nine-hour meeting of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.
