PSSRC Meeting 2017 in Graz

Written by

Dear PSSRC Members and Friends,

We are kindly inviting you to participate in the 11th Annual Meeting of the Pharmaceutical Solid State Research Cluster (PSSRC), which will take place in Graz, Austria from June 28th-30th, 2017. The 11th Annual Meeting continues a successful series of meetings since its establishment in 2006 and has already been held in Düsseldorf, Cambridge, Helsinki, Lisbon, Lille, Ljubljana, Ghent and Copenhagen. The PSSRC 2017 aims at providing a forum for the dissemination of information about research advancement in the field of solid state pharmaceutics, and to identify new challenging issues of pharmaceutical interest, both in the pharmaceutical industry and academia.

The main focus of the meeting will lie on:

·         Advanced Manufacturing

·         Physicochemical Pharmaceutics

·         Biopharmaceutics

The symposium starts with a closed meeting for cluster members only (“Closed Part”, June 28th-29th), and will end with an “Open Day” for Industry and Academia (June 30th), during which the more senior cluster members will present their research to the wider pharmaceutical community across academia and industry.

The Symposium offers an excellent opportunity for networking and scientific interactions with colleagues and friends within the PSSRC (Closed Part), but also with peers from the private sector (Open Day).

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Graz!

With best regards,

Johannes Khinast on behalf of the Organizing Committee
