Basic Biopharmaceutics Workshop

Develop your knowledge on core theoretical principles and the application of biopharmaceutics to aid progression of oral drug development projects.

The APS is pleased to announce a unique opportunity of a one-day workshop focused on oral biopharmaceutics and the science of oral absorption delivered by a mix of industrial and academic experts in oral biopharmaceutics with many years of experience.

Topics covered include

  • Basic fundamental principles of oral biopharmaceutics
  • Impact of small molecule physicochemical properties
  • Biopharmaceutical properties on oral bioavailability
  • Gastrointestinal physiology
  • Basic pharmacokinetics principles
  • Biopharmaceutical Classification System, Developability Classification System
  • Biomodelling tools to predict oral absorption
  • Regulatory biopharmaceutics

Speakers are from large pharma, biotechnology companies, contract research organisations, University of Strathclyde, University of Huddersfield and the University of Bath.

There will be many opportunities to network and talk with the speakers. A discussion in a round table format will allow attendees the opportunity to question how biopharmaceutics data can be used to define key risks for oral product design and development and to define current gaps and future challenges.
