Drug Transport & Enabling Formulations Symposium 2024

The symposium jointly organized by InPharma & Nordic POP will take place on June 11th/12th, 2024 at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense Denmark.
An international symposium where academia and industry meet in Odense to discuss the latest scientific results on contemporary challenges in the development of candidate-enabling drug formulations and the whole band-with of novel biopharmaceutical approaches to gain a thorough mechanistic understanding and speed up the drug development process.

The EU-funded InPharma consortium has since 2021 brought together leading groups from academia and pharma industry all over Europe in their joint aim to train young researchers for faster and more efficient development of enabling drug formulations, while simultaneously minimizing animal testing and reducing development costs. During their third (and final) Annual Progress Meeting being held in Odense, InPharma Early Stage Researchers and their Supervisors will share insights and findings gained during the project period with the Scientific Community.

The Nordic Research Council-funded NordicPop (patient oriented products) is a Nordic university consortium coordinated by the University of Copenhagen. It aims to provide the scientific foundation for the next generation pharmaceutical products - patient oriented products- by strengthening the use of interdisciplinary approaches within Nordic pharmaceutical sciences. NordicPOP will show-case research activities ongoing within the member- and affiliated Universities in all Nordic Countries.

The sessions will be covering
  • Oral enabling formulations
  • Dissolution testing &beyond
  • PBBM modelling
  • From Modelling to Artificial Intelligence in drug development
  • Nanomedicines
  • Vaginal drug delivery
  • The green transition in drug discovery & development
  • Special session for young talents in pharma sciences
As keynote speakers, you will be able to listen to Nair Rodriguez-Hornedo (University of Michigan), James Polli (University of Maryland), Natasa Skalko-Basnet (The Arctic University Tromsø), Eva Maria del Amo Páez (University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio), Holger Grohganz (University of Copenhagen), Jaakko Teppo (University of Helsinki) and Hongbo Zhang (Åbo Akademi, Turku). (Speaker list under extension).

There will be no participation fee for InPharma and Nordic POP members. Guest will be charged a nominal fee to cover catering expenses.

The final program, call for contributions and abstract submission will be published on this homepage in early February.
