CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ
November 17-18, 2016

Who Should Attend?
The course will be of value to those new to this field or those working in specific sectors of pharma, biotech and related industries (e.g. nutraceuticals, cosmetics) that want to learn a broader perspective of drug delivery technologies. This would include:
  • R&D Scientists and Managers 
  • Chemists 
  • Engineers 
  • Business Development 
  • Technology Transfer Managers 
  • Investors 
  • Intellectual Property Managers 
  • Biotechnologists 
  • Regulatory Affairs Personnel 

Professionals in start-ups, drug discovery and early drug development companies will benefit along with technical and business staff that serve in CROs and CMOs. 

Course Description
This 2-day intensive training will provide an introduction to the concepts of drug delivery, and the critical aspects of drug product development that may be addressed or solved by selecting the most appropriate delivery route. Emphasis will be placed on recently developed drug delivery approaches, describing technologies developed to the point of being industrially applicable or with potential to be developed to this point. Presentation of “case studies”, specifically taken from industrial experience, will be provided in the various sections to emphasize the practical advantages and disadvantages of the described technologies. The lectures are structured to encourage active participation and include a workshop session.
