In Vivo Predictive Dissolution (iPD) Conference Rescheduled, Expanded

Ann Arbor, MI, February 9th, 2017: The in vivo Predictive Dissolution (iPD) Conference 2017, hosted by the Drug Delivery Foundation (www.ddfint.org) and originally proposed to be held at the University of Michigan August 7th – 9th, 2017, has been rescheduled and expanded to a four and a half day workshop March 5th – 9th, 2018, in Lake Tahoe, CA.

The rescheduling and expansion of the iPD conference was done to not conflict with the upcoming AAPS workshop in September and to provide more extensive education and training for implementing a science-based mechanistic Formulation Predictive Dissolution (fPD) methodology for a Pharmaceutical Product Development environment.

Details of the iPD-fPD four and a half day workshop will be available by September 2017, which will follow the format of the Oral Drug Delivery conference series that have been sponsored by the Drug Delivery Foundation over the past 30 years.
