Controlled Release



Jan. 10, 2013 - PRLog -- Controlled release remains one of the most important innovate areas in pharma, with revenues set to dramatically increase to 2020. Recent advances in drug delivery systems have created the perfect mix for opportunities in the field.

SMi's 10th annual Controlled Release conference to be held in London on 18 & 19 March, will continue its long tradition of bringing together critically-acclaimed speakers to debate how controlled release products and drugs have developed over the past 12 months. Key issues up for discussion this year will include investigating structure-activity relationships of siRNA nanoparticles and the challenges of pre-clinical gastro-retentive dosage form development.  In addition, large pharma laboratories will present case studies such as GSKs formulation development programme.

Among the speaker faculty this year:
- Andy Lewis, Director Novel Formulation Technologies, Ipsen (Andy is also Board Director at the Controlled Release Society)
- David Elder, Externalisation Director, GlaxoSmithKline
- Frank Thielmann, Operational Lead, Inhalation New Solids, Novartis Pharma
- Petra Wicklandt, CMC-Development, Merck & Co
