 Manufacturing Classification System for oral solid dosage forms: Good in Theory and in Practice

Jan 26, 2021 12pm (Midday) UK time.

This online seminar will give an introduction to the MCS concept for the development of oral solid dosage forms (tablets and capsules). It will give case studies of its application throughout the drug development process in the areas of formulation design, process development, materials science and characterization of both API and drug product. There will be opportunity for discussion around the path forward for the MCS initiative, as well as barriers seen to future implementation.

Delegates will learn the principles of the MCS concept and how to apply it to both batch and continuous manufacture. Examples will be given of how MCS can be combined with modelling to improve drug development.

 World Meeting on Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology

11th to 14th May 2021 ONLINE

The Austria Center Vienna has informed us today that the local government has built up a SARS-CoV-2 test center in the congress halls, where we had planned to hold our 12th World Meeting on Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology on May 11-14, 2021.

Due to the current uncertain sanitary situation and limited travel options during the pandemic, the organisers decided to completely hold the PBP World Meeting and its accompanying exhibition ResearchPharm® as a virtual event on the same days.

The deadline for abstract submission is postponed to 31 January 2021.

More detailed information, e.g. on the updated registration fees, existing and new conference registrations, minor changes to the scientific programme, and technical details will follow soon.

We do hope that you may understand our decision. We promise to go to the beautiful city of Vienna with one of our future PBP World Meetings.

Further information can be found by following the link to the PBP meeting website.
