Solubility & Bioavailability Summit 2014

Exploring New Strategies for Optimizing Bioavailability of Current and Future Drug Products

December 4-5, Racquet Club of Philadelphia, PA

Perhaps the most critical research agenda for today's pharmaceutical industry is achieving solubility and bioavailability of poorly soluble drug candidates. The challenges are not going away, and neither are your organization's demands. Pharma Ed's Solubility & Bioavailability Summit focuses on the innovative science required to overcome bioavailability/solubility challenges for API's in a wide range of pre-clinical, clinical, and manufacturing contexts.
