7th American Drug Delivery & Formulation Summit

28 – 29 August 2017 | Boston



Innovative solutions to the greatest challenges in pharmaceutical development


The growth of biopharma and patient compliance issues have encouraged us to adopt a drug delivery mind set from discovery through to production.


Every year we see innovation and breakthroughs at every level of drug development.


The DDF Summit brings the most innovative and exciting studies to you.


Covering both small molecules and biologics, you’ll find new technologies, concepts and case studies in areas such as…


  • Formulation design for poorly soluble compounds
  •  The potential of nanotechnology for better deliverability
  •  The latest controlled released technologies
  •  Improving patient compliance by harnessing data and the latest smart device technology
  • Optimising formulations for continuous manufacturing
  • Overcoming the blood brain barrier and challenges in oral delivery of biologics
  • Reformulation and biosimilars
