Clouded by Expertise

Techniques for Communicating to the Public

Why is there a disconnect between being an expert and effectively communicating that expertise? Jason Mizerek, Fleet Inquiry Institute Manager, will facilitate this interactive workshop. Place yourself into the role of a learner and discover some of the challenges the public faces when they try to understand your science. Through our shared experience, we will generate a list of best practices that you can begin to implement immediately.

TALK | 6:00 – 7:00pm
Molecules in Motion

Improving the Odds for Pharmaceutical Development

Most active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are solid in nature and can exist in a variety of forms. An ideal solid form of an API is physically & chemically stable, bioavailable, can be manufactured consistently and formulated as a product that meets the intended target. Join Cambrex for a demonstration of some of the properties that can be modified when a salt form of an API is made, including a discussion of the advantages and potential issues of this tried and tested technique. This session is for companies interested in accelerating their molecule toward the clinic and patients who need new treatments.

NETWORKING & DEMO | 4:00-7:00pm
