Formulating The Future - KTN Biopharmaceutical Formulation Group meeting
The KTN will be holding the next Biopharmaceutical Formulation Group (BFG) meeting in Manchester on 11th July 2017. The University of Manchester’s Centre of Excellence in Biopharmaceuticals (COEbP) and Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB) are hosting the event and we invite delegates to attend who have an interest in Formulation at all levels within the UK.
Thanks to the support of our hosts, and supporters, the KTN is able to deliver this meeting as a free event for the community. This one day event aligns with the KTN’s activities in biopharmaceutical formulation, and wider formulation community as well as the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership (MMIP). The meeting will bring industrial and academic members of the community to network and discuss recent developments and best practices within the sector. The aim of the meeting is to look forward to the future of Formulation, particularly within the UK and we have assembled together a selection of speakers to represent the many facets of the modern formulation sector from the biopharma field and beyond.
Agenda will be published soon, but confirmed speakers include:
· Ahmed Yasin, Partner & Practice Manager at Basildon & Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
· Graeme Cruickshank, Director of the National Formulation Centre, CPI
· Jian Lu, Professor, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester
· Yvonne Perrie, Professor in Drug Delivery at University of Strathclyde
Call for posters – there will be a chance for researchers to present posters with the possible opportunity of a 2-3 minute poster flash presentation to the group. Please note your interest on registration and use the free text box to indicate title and short descriptor. You will be advised if your poster is selected as soon as possible after that, and by 1st July for short oral poster flash.
