TORONTO, September 28, 2018 – In a live session on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 11 a.m. EDT (4 p.m. BST/UK), viewers can learn how to apply lipid-based drug delivery systems to early phase molecules by joining academic and industry experts to develop a better understanding of new prediction models, novel lipid excipients, and lipid formulation screening tools with real-world case studies.

Introduced to the pharmaceutical industry decades ago, lipid-based drug delivery systems are the most well-studied and widely utilized technology among all available bioavailability enhancement technologies.1 Lipid-based drug delivery systems have delivered more than 60 unique drug molecules to market – and counting.2

With today’s increasingly complex new molecules emerging from R&D, optimizing bioavailability for early phase molecules is critical to their success. Not only do lipid-based drug delivery systems provide a reliable solution for poorly soluble molecules, they also allow for efficient and scalable dose formulation solutions which can accelerate progress to clinic and beyond, especially for orphan and breakthrough therapies.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the importance of and recent developments in lipid-based drug delivery systems
  • Learn about novel lipid excipients, models, and screening tools for early phase development of lipid-based drug delivery systems
  • Learn how to use mechanistic studies and modeling to predict the impact of lipids on oral absorption

Join the panel of experts including Nigel Langley, Director Technical Service and Scientific Affairs at BASF Pharma Solutions, Stephen Tindal, Director of Science & Technology, USA, at Catalent, and Rebecca L. Carrier, Professor & Associate Chair of Research, Chemical Engineering Department, Northeastern University, for an interactive session.

The presentation is designed to benefit professionals working within early phase development, including formulation scientists, pharmaceutical development scientists, and those working within pharmaceutical technology, pharmaceutical R&D, formulation development, product development and CMC.
