Crystallisation & Polymorphism for Discovery Chemists

Organised by:

SCI's Young Chemists' Panel

Pfizer Lecture Theatre, Cambridge, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

With the increased demand for APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) to reach the marketplace, chemists in early stage development are expected to have a greater understanding of solid form and crystallisation. This single day event, presented by a selection of industrialists and academics in their field of expertise, will provide an introduction to this area, specifically initial crystallisation experiments, solid form selection and formulation and how these matters are handled using real industrial examples.


Attendees
- Young chemists who have just started (or are hoping to start) in industry as formulation or development scientists;
- Medicinal or computational chemists near the interface with development and formulation who want to get a better appreciation of the issues;
- Scientists interested in moving across from medicinal or computational chemistry to pharmaceutical sciences/formulation.
