Ensuring amorphous product quality: what are the challenges?
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
Amorphous drug formulation offers great promise in improving drug solubility - a major challenge in drug development. However, poor physical stability and hard to predict crystallisation remains key barriers for the wider use of amorphous solid solution in the pharmaceutical industry.

This symposium will critically examine the challenges and opportunities lie in the analysis of amorphous formulation systems.
Leading industrialists and academics will be sharing their experiences in the development, manufacturing and quality assurance of amorphous products.
New analytical technologies for the prediction of amorphous stability and novel PAT will be discussed.

You will gain latest knowledges on the analysis and manufacturing of amorphous/solid solution products.
You may form new collaborations with experts across academic and industry.

Speakers:
Prof Gavin Andrews - Queen's University Belfast
Prof Duncan Craig - University College London
Dr Korbinian Löbmann - University of Copenhagen
Dr Claire Pizzey - Diamond Light Source
Hans Platteeuw - Avivia
Dr Paul Royall - King's College London
Dr Abhishek Singh - Johnson & Johnson
Dr Krzysztof Sollohub - Catalent

Thursday 8th February 2018
Cleaning validation
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
Continuing our successful continuing programme of pharmaceutical analysis symposia, this meeting will focus on cleaning validation and is aimed at providing the latest regulatory expectations and best practice information in the domain of cleaning validation since the publication of the European Medicines Agency Shared Facilities Guideline and subsequent Q&A Document.

The meeting will explore cleaning validation requirements from a toxicologists perspective and also examine new facility design considerations to minimise the potential for cross contamination.

There will be ample opportunity to interact with the expert speakers during Q&A sessions and panel discussions throughout the day and informally during lunch and refreshment breaks.

This symposium will be of special interest to those engaged in Quality Control and Quality Assurance , Manufacturing and Validation in the Pharmaceutical and Biotech Industry, NHS manufacturing units, Contract Manufacturing Organisations, consulting, academia, and anyone else concerned with the management and assessment of cleaning validation.

Speakers:
Dr Steve Alley - RSSL
Dr Joel Bercu - Gilead
Dr Walid El Azab - Steris
Dr Colin Gall - Fujifilm
Dr Brian Hammond - RSSL
Dr Helena Hemming - AZ
Dr Graeme McKilligan - MHRA

Thursday 15th March 2018
Continuous manufacturing
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
Continuous manufacturing offers great promise in improving productivity, efficiency and the intrinsic quality of pharmaceutical products. However, despite strong regulatory support aimed at encouraging the early adoption of new technologies, which in turn would facilitate the application of modern quality management techniques to all aspects of pharmaceutical production and quality assurance; uptake by Industry has been very slow.
This symposium, held in partnership with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, will critically examine some of the challenges and opportunities that arise from adopting continuous manufacturing. Leading regulators, industrialists and academics will be sharing their experiences in the development, manufacturing and quality assurance of continuous manufacturing.

  LAST EVENT:
Thursday 12th October 2017
Stability Challenges III: Assuring the stability of medicines from manufacture to use
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
Continuing our successful Stability Challenges series, this meeting is the third in the series and is aimed at providing the latest information and best practice on many aspects of stability testing. In this particular meeting the focus will be on data evaluation, discussing the estimation and prediction of shelf lives, including physical stability, and the effects of temperature and humidity excursions. Also the efficient application of stability testing according to lean laboratory principles will be explored along with MHRA views on stability requirements and GMDP expectations.

The focus of this meeting is to examine best practice during the distribution and storage of medicines, to ensure correct storage conditions are maintained and to ensure the quality of the medicine is maintained during use in the clinic or by the patient. The generation of data to support temperature excursions and to demonstrate in-use stability will be explored.

This symposium will be of special interest to those engaged in Quality Control and Quality Assurance, pharmaceutical development, regulatory affairs, storage and distribution in the Pharmaceutical Industry, NHS manufacturing units, Contract Research Organisations, consulting, academia, and anyone else concerned with the management and assessment of drug stability.

TESTIMONIALS:
Very enjoyable and thought-provoking day; going away with plenty of notes and specific items for discussion.

Excellent meeting, challenging and thought provoking. The organisation was excellent, thanks to all the efforts that JPAG team have made.

I have not attended a bad JPAG meeting yet. They are really good value for money and I really love to get the presentations as PDFs
