The conference will be the continuation of the very successful series of scientific meetings, which have been held in Budapest, Paris, Berlin, Florence, Geneva, Barcelona, Malta, Istanbul, Lisbon, Glasgow, Granada and (due to the COVID crisis) in 2021 in a virtual format.
This conference series is continuously gaining in impact among the pharmaceutical scientists: With close to 1000 submitted abstracts and more than 1300 participants it has become a well-established major meeting, attracting scientists from all over the world.
Importantly, the entire spectrum of topics in the fields of Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology will be covered. This includes for example engineering aspects of manufacturing processes, the portfolio of commercially available excipients enabling formulation of a large variety of drug products and medical devices, the underlying basic sciences (e.g., physico-chemical principles), cutting-edge characterization techniques of dosage forms in vitro and in vivo, as well as potential pitfalls and hurdles to be overcome during product development, manufacturing and quality control.
The conference will be held on 3 and a half days: From Monday (noon) until Thursday (evening). From Tuesday to Thursday, 4 parallel sessions with oral presentations will be held:
2 Sessions on industry-related topics, presented by distinguished invited speakers, giving overviews on the current state of the art in the respective fields,
2 Sessions with short talks selected from submitted abstracts, presenting most recent research findings in a large variety of domains.
Throughout the conference, the accompanying exhibition ResearchPharm provides a highly interdisciplinary platform for pharmaceutical scientists working in all fields of drug development & manufacturing in industry, academia and regulatory bodies. This exhibition is steadily growing and offers the possibility to present and learn about the newest trends and products in the areas of pharmaceutical ingredients, developing and processing equipment, analytical technologies, drug products, medical devices and contract manufacturing.
The aim of the meeting is to bring people together, working in fundamental and applied academic research, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as in the regulatory field. The conditions for the initiation of interesting new collaborations will be provided. We are convinced that these personal interactions are crucially important.
For all these reasons, we cordially invite you to join our 13th World Meeting and would be very glad to welcome you in Rotterdam!
