Thursday 22nd June 2017
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.

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 is an essential event for anyone concerned with the management and assessment of drug stability


Tuesday 28th November 2017
The pharmaceutical analysis postgraduate research awards and careers symposium
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
JPAG presents its inaugural pharmaceutical analysis symposium for postgraduate students and early career stage scientists. This will provide the opportunity for delegates to showcase their work and network with peers, academics and industrial scientists through podium and poster presentations.The best podium and poster presentations will be recognised with cash prizes up to 500 GBP.

There will also be plenary lectures by leading scientists and an industrial careers exhibition.

See the AWARDS page for further information on how to present your work.


Thursday 7th December 2017
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.
