XRD Training for the Pharmaceutical Scientist!
The Pharmaceutical Powder X-ray Diffraction Symposium is designed to create a forum for the exchange of knowledge and cutting-edge ideas among those interested in the combined fields of XRD and pharmaceutical sciences. It typically includes a full-day workshop, followed by several important sessions focused on practical applications of X-ray analysis in the study of pharmaceutical materials. Topics include patent and regulatory issues, formulation, product development, drug delivery, polymorphs, amorphous and nanomaterials, complimentary techniques, and much more.
Since 1999, ICDD has hosted 16 PPXRDs in various parts of the world. The host locations typically rotate and symposiums have been held in USA, Europe, and Asia. The abstracts from previous symposiums are publicly available as well as the presentations, except for the most recent event. The most recent presentations are available to attendees of that year’s event, for one year. After that time, they also become publicly available.
PPXRD-16 was a joint meeting with the second SPS-XRPD – Spring Pharmaceutical Synchrotron X-ray Powder Diffraction Workshop and was held in Switzerland at the Paul Scherrer Institute from 9-12 May 2019. Read the Summary and Learn More.
