Date:4/14/2009

ARLINGTON, VA. (April 6, 2009) The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) has announced the appointment of Demiana William Faltaos, Ph.D., to the position of Research Fellow at the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), where she will begin work this week to develop effective Alzheimer's disease-state models for a 2-year period. Dr. Faltaos' appointment comes at the end of a collaborative effort to recruit and screen scientific candidates for the position by AAPS and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). The agreement was signed in December of 2007 by Janet Woodcock, M.D., Director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research at the FDA, and the Executive Director of AAPS, John Lisack Jr., CAE. The CRADA marks the first time that AAPS has contributed the funding for a specific research agreement.

"We are thrilled to have Dr. Faltaos become a part of this unique partnership between AAPS and the FDA," said Lisack. "Her research skills and experience will be put to great use on this project."

Dr. Faltaos received her Ph.D. in pharmacy from the "Ren Descartes" University of Paris V in May of 2006. Prior to accepting this appointment, she served as a Clinical Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacokinetics researcher with Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development in Belgium.

"Dr. Faltaos brings with her years of drug development experience and a strong background in modeling and simulation," said Joga Gobburu, Ph.D., Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Office of Clinical Pharmacology, FDA. "The FDA is excited to embark on this important Critical Path project with new drugs under development that may modify disease progression, this CRADA will allow us to explore the benefits and risks of competing trial designs and analysis in order to discern disease-modification effects."

Under the terms of the CRADA, e
