2nd Annual Oxford Global Formulation and Drug Delivery Congress 2016 London

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences are proud to announce the 2nd Annual For­mu­la­tion & Drug Deliv­ery Con­gress 2016, tak­ing place on May 1819, 2016 at the Kens­ing­ton Close Hotel in Lon­don, UK.

    Our highly antic­i­pated event pro­vides a unique oppor­tu­nity for over 150 for­mu­la­tion and drug deliv­ery lead­ers to net­work and engage in sci­en­tific dis­cus­sions about the most excit­ing areas of research that will shape the future land­scape of the indus­try. The Con­gress is co-​located with the inau­gural Inhala­tion & Res­pi­ra­tory Drug Deliv­ery Con­gress 2016 cov­er­ing the devel­op­ment and for­mu­la­tion of inhaled ther­a­pies and inhala­tion devices and analytics.

    The for­mu­la­tion and drug deliv­ery mar­ket rep­re­sents a com­plex area of the indus­try that is accel­er­at­ing at a sub­stan­tial rate. The market’s expan­sion is the con­se­quence of recent advance­ments in bio­log­ics and small mol­e­cule drugs for­mu­la­tion research, advanced solid and liq­uid for­mu­la­tions strate­gies and novel drug deliv­ery tech­nolo­gies. A recent sur­vey has also high­lighted that the global drug deliv­ery tech­nol­ogy mar­ket is expected to reach $224.2 bil­lion by 2017.

    On day one our highly esteemed speak­ers will focus on large mol­e­cule drugs for­mu­la­tion and small mol­e­cule drug deliv­ery. Pre­sen­ta­tions will cover such key areas of research as ensur­ing the qual­ity and sta­bil­ity of bio­logic for­mu­la­tions as well as the for­mu­la­tion of highly potent mol­e­cules. Enhanc­ing nanopar­ti­cles as drug deliv­ery sys­tems and var­i­ous small mol­e­cule drug deliv­ery tech­nolo­gies will also be addressed.

    Day 1 Stream 1 – Large Mol­e­cule Drugs Formulation

    • Char­ac­ter­is­tics of pep­tide & pro­tein formulations
    • Over­com­ing pro­tein & pep­tide for­mu­la­tion challenges
    • Ensur­ing the qual­ity and sta­bil­ity of bio­logic formulation
    • For­mu­la­tion chal­lenges of highly potent molecules
    • For­mu­la­tion strate­gies in early & pre-​commercial development
    • Suit­able solu­tion con­di­tions & excipients
    • Solids, liq­uids or advanced pro­tein formulations
