The Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences organises several major conferences and symposia each year on topics of interest to pharmaceutical scientists. These symposia are held at different venues throughout the UK.
APS Nanomedicines for the Delivery of Biologics  

Meadow Suite, Park House, University of Reading, Reading RG6 6UA
Wednesday 18 July 2018

Overview  Programme  Terms and Conditions 

Under the auspices of APS, with special insight from the Nanomedicine focus group, we are proud to announce this new one-day special symposium. This one-day symposium builds on the Recent Emerging Technologies in Therapeutic Oligonucleotides conference in Cambridge, March 2018. We are bringing together world-class speakers with expertise in nanomedicines for the delivery of biologics spanning from bench to bedside. We have assembled an outstanding speaker line-up which includes, but is not limited to, Prof Awyn Jones (University of Cardiff), Prof Yvonne Perrie (University of Strathclyde) and Prof Len Seymour (University of Oxford).

Key elements covered during the meeting, with a context-specific focus, will include:

  • The biological barriers to delivery
  • Exploit and copy nature to develop better delivery vectors
  • Pharmaceutical formulation

The meeting brings together an interdisciplinary community with a shared interest in nanomedicines for the delivery of biologics, providing networking opportunities, while also addressing the opportunities and challenges this field faces. The focal point of the meeting is the delivery challenges of biologics, which require an interdisciplinary approach and insight as reflected by the key elements this symposium will address. This meeting is ideally suited for PhD candidates, academics, industrialists and regulatory personnel. Overall, the content of this special symposium has been carefully crafted to complement the existing APS meeting portfolio, and it seeks to address a critical knowledge gap within the UK and beyond.
