NIPTE, Inc. is a unique not-for-profit organization dedicated to fundamental research and education in pharmaceutical product development and manufacturing. NIPTE's goal is to increase science and engineering-based understanding of this area such that novel state-of- the-art technologies can be developed and science-based regulations can be implemented. These technologies will also enable new drug discoveries to be brought to market faster with less variability, higher predictability of performance and at a significantly lower cost. In terms of FDA's Critical Path Document, NIPTE research focus is in the area of “Industrialization.”
NIPTE focus is "Industrialization" (adopted from "Innovation and Stagnation. Challenge and Opportunity on the Critical Path to New Medical Products")
NIPTE's mission consists of two interconnected components: articulation of a vigorous research agenda leading to the development of necessary knowledge, and the development of a strong human resource pool needed both for development of this knowledge and its implementation in industry. NIPTE welcomes collaboration with the FDA, NIH, the pharmaceutical industry and academic colleagues around the world to achieve common goals.
