Event Overview:

Spray drying offers multiple opportunities for improving the formulation of both poorly soluble compounds and inhaled drug products. Although spray drying is a well-established manufacturing process, challenges persist throughout the development process and novel applications are continuously evaluated. Join this webinar to hear from a panel of experts on the critical challenges of spray dried powder formulation development, risk mitigation strategies and the effect of material and process parameters on the physical and chemical properties of the spray dried powder of pharmaceutical products.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand key challenges during spray dried powder development
  • Gain insight into risk mitigation strategies used to address common challenges from the early to late phase of spray dried amorphous and crystalline powder development
  • Understand the impact of spray drying on powder properties in terms of manufacturability and downstream processability

This webinar will appeal to individuals working in:

  • Formulation Development
  • Preclinical Development
  • Research and Development
  • Analytical Development
  • CMC
  • Product Development
  • Project Management
  • Manufacturing and Operations Management
  • Consultants for Drug Development
