The 9th annual Conference of the European Paediatric Formulations Initiative (EuPFI) will take place on 20th and 21st September 2017 in Warsaw, Poland.
The conference is organised by EuPFI in partnership with the International Association for Pharmaceutical Technology. A pre-conference workshop is scheduled for 19th September.
GRiP is a long-standing partner of EuPFI in improving the understanding of paediatric formiulations.
This conference series represents the ideal forum to learn, grow and to be inspired on the development of age appropriate dosage forms.
This year's conference marks the 10th anniversary of the Paediatric Regulation and foundation of EuPFI consortium.
It will be an opportunity to gather together to reflect back on the past decade of paediatric formulations, to celebrate accomplishments, to welcome new researchers and enriching networking opportunities and to consider how novel and emerging technologies will yield further insights into what the future may bring.
Therefore, the programme is devised to include talks on the past and future of European regulation and formulations.
The thematic sessions (posters, podium presentations, innovation show cases, etc) range from administration devices, biopharmaceutics, taste masking and taste testing, age appropriateness of formulations to pharmaceutical excipients, without forgetting about the need for developing countries.
Participans will hear about the strategies to successfully taste mask medications: a case example with TB drugs, an overview on system for dosing and dispensing multiparticulate formulations of pediatric drugs, use of colorants in paediatric medicines, lessons learned from paediatric fixed dose combination dispersible tablets for tuberculosis and much more.
All the information on the conference, including how to submit abstracts, is available on the EuPFI website - http://www.eupfi.org/upcoming-conference/9th-conference/
