29th April/24th June/29th July/30th September/28th October/25th November

Series of virtual events from April to November have been organised by Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences Nanomedicines Focus Group.

The APS are pleased to announce this special series: the focal point is the use of nanomedicine to overcome biological barriers to drug delivery, The meetings will be standard lectures with plenty of opportunities for discussions; fireside chats and flash presentations. These meetings bring together expert speakers from academia and industry.

A series of lunchtime webinars, fire side chats and Flash presentations will run from April to November

They will start at 1.00pm and we aim to finish at 2.00pm. There will be an opportunity for Q&A after the talks.

The Flash presentations selected will receive a prize.

You can register for one  or all six.

You will be sent a ZOOM INVITE a day before the event and then one hour before the start. Please click to join and register your details.

This meeting series 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.
