International Conference on Science and Technology of Pharmaceutical Glass

Hosted by
National Institute for Materials Science, Medical Soft Matter Group
Chiba University, Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Technology

Co-hosted by
The Academy of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology, Japan
Forum for Pharmaceutical Technology Innovation

When : Aug. 10th, 2023
Where : National Institute for Materials Science, Sengen site (Tsukuba, Japan)

This conference (ICSTPG) is organized as a satellite symposium for the 9th International Discussion Meeting on Relaxations in Complex Systems (9IDMRCS), which will be held from Aug 12th to 18th, 2023, at Makuhari Messe, Chiba, Japan. 9IDMRCS has a session on pharmaceutical glasses, for which focus will be made on solid-state dynamics of glass. ICSTPG will cover wider topic on pharmaceutical glasses, which may include dissolution and in vivo performance of the pharmaceutical glasses as well as their solid state dynamics. Those who are involved in scientific researches on pharmaceutical glasses as well as industrial researchers working on poorly soluble drugs are highly welcome to this conference to exchange scientific and practical ideas on various aspects of pharmaceutical glasses.
