SMI EVENT:::::Lyophilisation Europe – 29 – 30 June 2015 – London UK

2000X200DESCRIPTION: Spurred by the growth of the new drugs, the lyophilisation market is projected to reach $5,121.5 million by 2019. With the rising risk of contamination and the need for improved formulation methods of biological products, robust capabilities in lyophilisation and freeze drying methods have become critical for prolonging drug life span whilst maintaining its functionality and preventing it from damage.

Innovation and efficiency is requested at every level making SMi’s 3rd annual European conference on Lyophilisation, the perfect platform to strengthen knowledge in key principles such as PAT and QbD whilst keeping you at the forefront of technological breakthroughs to adapt to a competitive growing industry.

We have worked closely with a leading panel of experts such as Takeda, GSK, Boehringer-Ingelheim, Hovione, Novo Nordisk A/S, Baxter Bioscience and UCB BioPharma, to create an agenda that asks questions such as: What are the fundamentals of freeze drying and how can process development be optimised? How can risk-based approaches be integrated into QbD principles? How is spray drying a viable alternative to lyophilisation for achieving continuous production? How does PAT support scales up processes and to what degree has it been successful? What are the future prospects for continuous production processes?

SMI EVENT:::::::Biobanking 22 – 23 JUNE 2015 – London UK

2OOX2OODESCRIPTION: With the global medical biobanking industry expected to reach $22.7 billion by 2018 and the increasing amount of sample and information sharing between biobanks and research facilities, SMi’s 5th annual BioBanking conference comes at the perfect time on 23rd & 24th June 2015, to discuss key topics surrounding best practice in specimen and repository preservation, future integrity of sample collections, confidentiality of research participants, plus much more!

We have worked closely with a leading panel of experts such as The UK Biobank, MHRA, Baby Biobank, Sanofi-Aventis, UK Stem Cell Bank, Brain Bank Consultants and Baby Biobank, to create an agenda that asks questions such as: How will regulatory changes in EU data protection impact current procedures? What should biobanks do after funding expires? What are the steps in building a successful biobanking network? When are incidental findings fed back to participants? What does the future hold for medical biobanks? PLUS MUCH MORE.  To register or for further information, visit or contact the team on +44 (0)870 9090 711

Recently Published Issue of the Journal Current Molecular Medicine

Current Molecular Medicine is an interdisciplinary journal focused on providing the readership with current and comprehensive reviews, original research articles, short communications/letters and drug clinical trial studies on fundamental molecular mechanisms of disease pathogenesis, the development of molecular-diagnosis and/or novel approaches to rational treatment. The reviews should be of significant interest to basic researchers and clinical investigators in molecular medicine. Periodically the journal invites guest editors to devote an issue on a basic research area that shows promise to advance our understanding of the molecular mechanism(s) of a disease or has potential for clinical applications.
