PhandTA 11, the 11th International Conference on Pharmacy and Applied Physical Chemistry is a Joint Meeting of eurostar-science, Basel, Switzerland (Dr. Erwin Marti) and the Departments of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Technology of the University of Innsbruck, Austria (Prof. Dr. Ulrich Griesser).
The aim of the conference is to assemble Scientists and Experts
from Academia and
from the Pharamaceutical Industry interested to get informed about the newest Developments in the physicochemical Characterization of Pharmaceuticals.
aspects such as the Discovery and Screening of New Chemical
Entities and the physicochemical, galenical and preclinical
Characterization of Drug Substances, Drug Products and
Excipients will be presented and discussed. In addition,
investigations and research concerning the transport and the
bioavailability of Drug Substances are outlined as well as the
different forms of Delivery Systems.
The Conference intends to
create a platform for an interaction between Researchers
incorporated in the Academia and Scientists and Experts from
Research, Development and Regulatory Departments of the Life
In addition to the basic chemical structure of a drug substance
as free base or free acid, also entities such as hydrates,
solvates, salt forms, complexes, molecular compounds are existing. The characterization of these detected entities enables a selection of candidates for a further development. Many of the above mentioned entities with an identical basic chemical structure may also appear in different polymorphic forms which also should be taken into consideration for a comprehensive selection study.
Lectures are also welcome which give overviews in the
different areas of research and development as well as in the
physicochemical aspects of the manufacturing processes of
active substances, such as crystallization, phase separation,
lyophilization, drying and especially spray drying and freeze
drying. Also included in our Scientific Program are
preformulation and formulation processes for different types
of dosage forms.
The analytical, physicochemical and preclinical Methods and
Procedures are also in the focus of the Conference.
A Scientific Program offering Plenary Lectures, Key and Short
Communications as well as Poster Sessions anticipates an
exchange of information.
The program consists of the following sections:
Excipients and Polymers
Site-specific Drug Delivery
Methods of Physical Chemistry
You are cordially invited to participate in the PhandTA11.
Manufacturers of Instruments will
exhibit their newest developments during the instrumental
Service Organizations will show their capabilities and
will present their achievements.
The conference language will be English.
