PDA’s motto is ‘Connecting People, Science and Regulation’. In his career, Renaud Janssen has supported this goal in many ways. He has been a member of PDA for almost 30 years. His early contributions were presentations at PDA conferences in Europe, the U.S., and once in Japan on various subjects related to parenteral packaging, such as extractables and leachables, elastomer formulations, coated elastomer closures and ready-for-sterilization and ready-to-use components. Over the years, he has participated in various project teams and authored technical reports, e.g. on “Prefilled Syringe User Requirements for Biotechnology Applications” or “Zero Defects for Visible Particles”.
