A welcoming message,

The Summer School in Pharmaceutical Analysis (SSPA) is organized by the Intradivisional group of Pharmaceutical Analysis, Division of Medicinal Chemistry, Italian Chemical Society (SCI) and sponsored by the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC).

SSPA is mainly addressed to researchers and PhD students focusing on the different aspects of analysis in drug discovery and development and in drug manufacturing. The course is open to a maximum of 80 students and is held in English.

SSPA 2016 will focus on “Advanced Analytical Methodologies for Biotechnological and Biological medicinal products”. SSPA2016 will start with a regulatory session, followed by four main sessions concerning:

  • analytical methods in the discovery of Biotechnological and Biological medicinal products,

  • analytical methods for the characterization of Biotechnological and Biological medicinal products,

  • analytical methods in the pharmacokinetics of Biotechnological and Biological medicinal products,

  • analytical methods in the manufacturing of Biotechnological and Biological medicinal products.

There will also be a special session dedicated to case reports discussed by R&D managers of companies operating in the field of Biotechnological and Biological medicinal products.

SSPA2016 participants can choose between two registration packages: an all inclusive registration or a basic registration, this latter not including accommodation.

I hope you find this program of interest and we welcome to the School, scientists and PhD students .
