Emulsion-Suspension Technology

  November 01, 2007  
The Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ
January 28-30, 2008

Who Should Attend
This program will benefit personnel in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, personal care, household products and food industries including:
  • Scientists
  • Quality control
  • Technologists
  • Regulatory affairs specialists
  • Engineers
  • Pilot plant
  • Product planning
  • Production research
  • Development personnel

This course emphasizes the application of emulsion and suspension principles to the solution of practical, technological problems in the preparation and evaluation of pharmaceutical, cosmetic and related personal care products. Throughout the course, the interrelationship of the many specialty areas involved in emulsion and suspension products will be stressed. Newer technologies such as microemulsions and liposomes will be discussed. A blend of scientific principles and practical technology will be presented with special attention to the conceptual model of the oil-water interface as the basis for emulsion design. Techniques for studying the solid-liquid interface will be presented and applied to physicochemical problems which arise in the development of suspensions. Processing problems, with particular emphasis on scale-up, will be discussed.

Organized by: The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Stanley L. Hem; Professor of Physical Pharmacy, Purdue University

Dr. Stanley L. Hem is a Professor of Physical Pharmacy at the School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Sciences, Purdue University. He received his B.S. in Pharmacy from Rutgers University and a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut. Upon graduation in 1965, he joined the Pharmacy Research and Development Division of Wyeth Laboratories where he was involved in the formulation of liquid and semi-solid products. He joined the faculty at Purdue University in 1969. While at Purdue, Dr. Hem has been active in both teaching and research. His teaching efforts have been recognized by the students who have, four times, voted him the Henry Heine Outstanding Teacher Award. In addition, he received the 1991 Research Achievement Award in Pharmaceutical Technology from the American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences for his contributions to suspension technology.

Dr. Norman D. Weiner; Professor of Pharmaceutics, University of Michigan

Dr. Norman D. Weiner is a Professor of Pharmaceutics at the College of Pharmacy, University of Michigan. In both teaching and research, he emphasizes a conceptual, basic approach to the solution of theoretical and applied problems. His teaching responsibilities include basic pharmaceutics and specialized graduate level courses in surface chemistry, dispersed systems and novel drug delivery systems, with an emphasis on liposomes.

Also very active in research, he has published over 125 original research papers as well as review articles and book chapters in the areas of surface chemistry as related to biological activity and formulation development. His research in the effects of formulation on efficacy of a wide variety of products is supported by the National Institutes of Health and by the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. He consults on a regular basis for a large number of pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal care companies. Dr. Weiner received his B.S. degree from Brooklyn College of Pharmacy and a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from Columbia University. He taught at Columbia University until 1972 when he moved to his present location at the University of Michigan.
