The Ninth pan-European Conference on PAT and QbD Sciences

15 - 16 May 2018, Manchester, UK

EuPAT brings together pharmaceutical scientists and engineers from industry, academia and regulatory agencies to discuss recent developments and future trends in the field of pharmaceutical product and process development. The 9th EuPAT conference will focus on the status of QbD in pharmaceutical development, the latest advances in continuous manufacture and emerging developments in the manufacture and analysis of nanomedicines. Session content will describe technological developments, regulatory issues and recent experiences in drug development projects.

The conference builds on the success of the EuPAT series established in 2006 and will be organised by EUFEPS and its QbD and PAT Sciences Network in partnership with colleagues from The University of Manchester, North West Centre for Advanced Drug Delivery (NoWCADD) and Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB), AstraZeneca, Croda Europe and Malvern Instruments. The main meeting will be held on May 15th and 16th, 2018, at The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), Manchester, UK and will be preceded by a pre-conference workshop focussed on "Innovations in the design, manufacture and analysis of nanomedicines", which is scheduled to take place on May 14th, 2018. This meeting will comprise talks from high profile industrial and academic speakers and will be held at The University of Manchester. Plans are also being established for a site visit to AstraZeneca's Macclesfield Campus in nearby Cheshire where delegates will get the chance to tour the product development facility whilst listening to the experiences of AstraZeneca staff involved in recent innovation projects. The attendees of EuPAT9 are welcome to register for the pre-conference day.

  • EUNCL ExBo Meeting in Liverpool
    The EUNCL ExBo met on 22nd and 23rd November 2018 at University of Liverpool to discuss the actual status of the work in the project and especially in the TNA. The CET and TNA management updated the ExBo on the on-going and the further work planned. The discussion on all questions raised during the meeting was very extensive and important decisions were taken for the last year of the project duration.
  • CLINAM 2018 with EUNCL Participation
    It was the 11th Summit of its kind. CLINAM again welcomed the participants from the community of nanomedicine, targeted drug delivery and precision medicine and bring together the pioneers and worldwide opinion leaders, not only to learn and discuss but also to develop new ideas, create new collaborative projects and shape the future of medicine.
  • Trainee position at JRC (5 months)
    The Consumer Products Safety Unit (F.2), part of Health, Consumers and Reference Materials Directorate-F at the JRC in Ispra (Italy), is looking for a trainee for the Nanobiotechnology laboratory.
