Scientists working in the field of paediatric drugs


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 9th EuPFI annual conference will take place on the 20 - 21 September 2017 in Warsaw, Poland. This conference series is the ideal forum to learn, grow and to be inspired on the development of age appropriate dosage forms.

Marking the 10th anniversary of the Paediatric Regulation and foundation of EuPFI consortium, this year's conference will be an opportunity to gather together to reflect back on the past decade of paediatric formulations, to celebrate accomplishments, to welcome new researchers and enriching networking opportunities and to consider how novel and emerging technologies will yield further insights into what the future may bring. Therefore, the programme is devised to include talks on ‘10 Years of European Paediatric Regulation and Formulation’, Scoping the needs for paediatric formulation of old medicine, Lessons learned from acceptability and palatability studies in PIPs and MAA and so on.

The thematic sessions (posters, podium presentations, innovation show cases, etc) range from administration devices, biopharmaceutics, taste masking and taste testing, age appropriateness of formulations to pharmaceutical excipients, without forgetting about the need for developing countries. You will hear about the strategies to successfully taste mask medications: a case example with TB drugs, an overview on system for dosing and dispensing multiparticulate formulations of pediatric drugs, use of colorants in paediatric medicines, lessons learned from paediatric fixed dose combination dispersible tablets for tuberculosis and much more… We encourage you to explore the EuPFI website which contains all the information you need to submit your abstracts.

Take advantage of the pre-conference workshops to advance your knowledge in developing paediatric formulations. The two pre-conference workshops offer highly interactive and focused sessions for participants new to the topic or who want to consolidate their knowledge on 1) Biopharmaceutics evaluation of food effects in paediatric medicines development for products co-administered with food and 2) A ‘taster’ session on designing taste-masked oral paediatric formulation prototypes and how to plan their palatability assessment. These educational sessions are prelude to the conference and are not included in the conference.

Various refreshments breaks and a social evening will provide plenty of opportunities for networking, making valuable new contacts and reconnecting with old friends. EuPFI’s Annual conference is the perfect size to provide you with personal interactions with speakers.

We do hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be another successful conference. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Warsaw, the amazing city, that survived its tumultuous and complex past, full of contrasts with diverse architecture: restored Gothic, communist concrete, modern glass and steel. A gritty city that knows how to surprise you.
