APS Advances in Amorphous Design, Control and Delivery of Amorphous and Co-amorphous Pharmaceutical Materials
Friends House, Euston Road, London
Tuesday 3rd October 2017
The meeting will provide ideal opportunities to:
- Meet the leaders in the field of amorphous phase design, stabilisation and manufacture.
- Learn about the state of the art in this discipline as these materials move out of academic labs onto the market.
- Discuss and exchange information between academia and pharmaceutical industry.
APS is pleased to announce the final programme andinternationally renowned speakers:
Chair: Professor Yaroslav Khimyak (UEA)
Chair: Professor Gavin Andrews (Queen's University Belfast)
Welcome, Introductions and start of plenary lecture
Co-amorphous drug excipient combinations and formulations - Professor Thomas Rades (University of Copenhagen)
The role of the amorphous potential energy landscape for rational formulation development - Dr. Axel Zeitler (University of Cambridge)
When is amorphous not amorphous? And how we determine it? - Dr. Jason Gray (Pharmaterials)
Characterising dissolution mechanisms for amorphous dispersions- Dr. Clare Rawlinson-Malone (BMS)
Discussion session: How much do the techniques used drive IP and patent perspectives? And what is a coamorphous material? - Professor Andrew Goodwin (Oxford)
Characterising amorphous pharmaceuticals using pair distribution function methods - Professor Andrew Goodwin (University of Oxford)
In situ amorphisation and microwave assisted amorphisation - Dr. Korbinian Löbmann (University of Copenhagen)
Scale-up of pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion processes: Practical considerations and case studies - Dr. Christian Mühlenfeld(Ashland)
Freezing drying within a capsule: Developing amorphous formulations for poorly solubles on the mg scale - Dr. Paul Royall (Kings College London)
Presentations and discussion will focus on the significant advances in the design, control and production of amorphous and co-amorphous materials since the last highly successful APS amorphous meeting in 2014. The meeting is organised by the APS Materials Science Focus Group.
Exhibitors who are interested in showcasing their technologies at the meeting are invited to contact the APS secretariat ([email protected]).
