JPAG pharmaceutical analysis research awards 2020
VIRTUAL EVENT : 1pm-4pm (UK BST)

JPAG presents the fourth pharmaceutical analysis symposium for postgraduate students and early career stage scientists, including those in industry. This will provide the opportunity for delegates to showcase their work and network with peers, academics and industrial scientists through oral and poster presentations. There will be a £1,000 first prize and £250 second prize for the best oral presentations as well as £200 first prize and two runner-up prizes of £100 for the best posters. Registration is free for all students, early career stage scientists and their supervisors/managers, but we highly encourage students and early career stage scientists delegates to submit an abstract for poster or oral presentation to this exciting annual JPAG event.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is Thursday 3rd September 2020

This could be the event to provide a step-change to your professional career. Perhaps your future employer will be here.

Due to the fallout from Covid-19, this year, the event will be held on a online platform.


Keynote speaker: Dr Paul Royall, Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, King's College London
Dr Paul G. Royall is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutics at King’s College London. His research focuses on the use of materials science for the development of new dosage forms, especially freeze-dried and amorphous formulations to be administered via the oral route. He has a BSc Hons and a PhD from the University of Kent at Canterbury and served as a committee member for the Thermal Methods Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Abstract
Will be uploaded here soon.

Details of the programme will be published in due course.

The Keynote lecture on “Moving pharmaceutical research into products for patients” was given by Professor Abdul Basit, UCL School of Pharmacy.

Eight submitted abstracts had been selected from those submitted to be given as podium presentations by early-career scientists to showcase their research work. For some it was the first opportunity to present orally to a friendly and sympathetic audience. Twenty authors presented their findings as posters for viewing by their peers, academics and industrial scientists. All were adjudged to be excellent quality.

The Careers fair, supported by staff from the pharmaceutical industry and the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, provided an opportunity for young scientists to seek advice about career opportunities. Eight organisations supported the Careers fair to offer advice and information about careers in their organisations. The feedback was very positive, both from the young scientists and the career advisors.

The winner of the Geoffrey Phillips Analytical Science Award for the best podium presentation was Ms Delaram Ahmadi, King's College London, who gave a presentation on "Revealing the hidden details of nanostructure in a pharmaceutical cream". Delaram received a certificate and a bursary of up to £1,000 to support attendance at a conference of her choice.
