Stability VII
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

Continuing our successful series of stability meetings, this 7th event is essential for anyone concerned with the management and assessment of drug stability including respiratory products and unlicensed medicines. We have a group of expert speakers from academia, industry and with a regulatory perspective who will provide background information and new approaches to stability testing.

Hear about particular stability challenges in testing and shelf-life setting for these types of products and learn from our expert speakers on frameworks and practical challenges.

Posters are invited from industry and academia on stability topics to facilitate additional interaction between attendees and speakers.

Dr Helen Callaby - Pharmacy Manufacturing Unit; GSTT NHS Foundation Trust
Prof Parastou Donyai - King's College London
Megan Doran - Intertek
Joseph Hanna - Astra Zeneca
Dr Lisa Hinchliffe - LangAllan CMC Regulatory Solutions
Dr Paul Marshall - Jazz Pharmaceuticals
Prof Tony Moffat - University College London
Dr Garry Scrivens - Pfizer


COLLABORATIVE EVENT: Monday 3rd July 2023
Impurities in Food and Pharmaceuticals: Can Risk Assessment and Regulation be Aligned?
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
The health risk assessment of impurities is a key part of assuring the safety of food and drugs. Despite the scientific theory of hazard and risk assessment being shared by the two sectors, there are several significant regulatory differences. This event will look in detail at two case studies – titanium dioxide, which is under scrutiny in the food sector but is widely used in pharmaceuticals, and nitrosamines, which are naturally formed in certain foods but are extremely tightly controlled in medicines. We will discuss the reasons behind the differences, and in a panel session will explore whether there are possibilities for greater alignment between the sectors.

The future of spectroscopy: new capabilities and new applications
Royal Society of Chemistry, London

The 21st century have been witnessing an industrial revolution (industry 4.0) where digitisation, data-driven/AI-assisted automation and novel applications have emerged. Spectroscopic techniques offer simplicity, speed and specificity in characterising a wide variety of substances within pharmaceutical and other industries and has been playing an important part in this revolution.

In this special one-day symposium jointly organised by the Molecular Spectroscopy Group and Joint Pharmaceutical Analysis Group, we will discuss the newly emerged/emerging capabilities and applications of novel spectroscopic techniques in the pharmaceutical industry.

We would like to thank Metrohm for their sponsorship of this event
