Free AAPS webinar will discuss nanotechnology

October 13, 2009

WHO: The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) is a professional, scientific society of approximately 12,000 members employed in industry, academia, government and other research institutes worldwide. Founded in 1986, AAPS provides a dynamic international forum for the exchange of knowledge among scientists to enhance their contributions to public health. AAPS offers timely scientific programs, on-going education, information resources, opportunities for networking, and professional development.

WHAT: AAPS is pleased to present the complimentary eLearning Webinar on Nanotechnology in Drug Design and Development. This module is funded by a grant from AstraZeneca, and is organized by the AAPS Physical Pharmacy and Biopharmaceutics Section. This Webinar will be conducted by Roy Haskell, Ph.D.

WHY: The purpose of this free Webinar is to provide an overview of submicron systems and to discuss the analytical issues nanotechnology presents, as well as the means by which some of these issues can be addressed. Participants will gain understanding of submicron systems and the context in which the technology can be used in the pharmaceutical sciences.

WHEN: October 22, 2009
12:30 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
