Thursday 11th May 2017
The role of MS in impurity profiling
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

In association with the British Mass Spectrometry Society.

Impurities provide no benefit to patients; however, it is pragmatically accepted that complex, multi-stage pharmaceuticals cannot be manufactured without drug substance impurities or that drug products cannot be manufactured and stored without degradation products.
This symposium will explore the role of Mass Spectrometry (MS) in the identification and quantification of the various impurities that can be formed.
This symposium should be of interest to development, production, and academic scientists, as well as contract research organisations (CROs).

Dr Elspeth Gray - MHRA
Dr Sarah James - LGC
Dr Martin Ott - Lhasa
Dr Mark Perkins - Anatune
Dr Andrew Ray - AstraZeneca

Counterfeit medicines
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

It is now widely accepted that counterfeiting is a huge and growing challenge of global proportion.
This symposium will take an overview of the problems authenticity must address from three different perspectives:
• The problem Globally
• The critical role of Discovery and Compliance
• The key role that authentic APIs play in Risk Management
each of which will be supported by relevant case studies.

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
