The end of an era

Volume 20, Issue 4

It is the end of an era. Building on more than 6 years of dedication and hard work, Gurminder Marwaha has left Pharmaceutical Technology Europe (PTE) in search of new challenges. As his successor, I would like to join all the members of the editorial team in wishing him every success.

And so it is time for change. As the first Spaniard and the first woman to become the Editor of PTE, it is indeed a privilege to be writing this editorial and to assume the editorship of an already successful publication, leader in its sector, and which continues to grow steadily and healthily in readership.

I am honoured to be the new Editor of this magazine, especially at such an exciting time. During 2008, PTE will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary, an event that will be commemorated monthly with special features articles that evaluate the last two decades of developments in the pharmaceutical industry.

And with change come fresh ideas and new initiatives and plans, some of which you will see already implemented in this issue or gradually coming into being in forthcoming editions of the magazine. Indeed, in this issue of PTE we are introducing, for the first time, a biopharmaceutical section to reflect the rapid growth and development observed in this field of the pharmaceutical industry. Additionally (and for this issue only!), we are including a section specifically dedicated to Interpack, the largest international trade fair for the packaging industry worldwide, an event that will take place in Germany at the end of this month.

Finally, I would like to thank you, all pharmaceutical technologists across Europe, for your continued support of PTE through the years. It is your support and your contributions that make it the successful magazine that it is. With your input, I look forward to an even brighter future.
