Companion diagnostics for precision medicine
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

This one-day symposium will address the development and need for companion diagnostics (CDx) for precision medicine applications. Companion diagnostics are becoming more and more important with time together with the growth of targeted therapies. Precision medicine approach aims to stratify patients with the ultimate aim of targeting patients who are most likely to respond to a specific treatment. Currently, CDx are used for many diseases lung cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer and melanoma.

At this symposium, delegates will be able to explore the current state of the art in vitro diagnostic tests used by the industry and explore the different scientific measurements that are needed to develop and deliver a CDx into the market.

CDx is a platform technology and can be used for many other diseases, join us and lets discuss the future of healthcare and personalised treatment.

Online attendance option is available in this meeting via MS Teams.

The future of spectroscopy: new capabilities and new applications
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

The 21st century have been witnessing an industrial revolution (industry 4.0) where digitisation, data-driven/AI-assisted automation and novel applications have emerged. Spectroscopic techniques offer simplicity, speed and specificity in characterising a wide variety of substances within pharmaceutical and other industries and has been playing an important part in this revolution.

In this special one-day symposium jointly organised by the Molecular Spectroscopy Group and Joint Pharmaceutical Analysis Group, we will discuss the newly emerged/emerging capabilities and applications of novel spectroscopic techniques in the pharmaceutical industry.

Stability VII
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

Continuing our successful series of stability meetings, this 7th event is essential for anyone concerned with the management and assessment of drug stability - especially for respiratory products and unlicensed medicines. We have a group of expert speakers from academia, industry and with a regulatory perspective who will provide background information and new approaches to stability testing.

Hear about particular stability challenges in testing and shelf-life setting for these types of products and learn from our expert speakers on frameworks and practical challenges.

Posters are invited from industry and academia on stability topics to facilitate additional interaction between attendees and speakers.
