First Scottish Formulation Network workshop

21 March 2016

Edinburgh & Lothians

Venue: Informatics Forum, 10 Crichton Street, Edinburgh

Time: 13:00 to 16:00

For many companies developing new drugs, chemicals, coatings or food products getting the optimal formulation is particularly challenging due to structural complexity and instability. Developing or enhancing existing products can be time consuming, trial-and-error driven process which requires accelerated stability testing to identify the best out of many formulation alternatives. 

How can you ensure that 3-dimensional structures that deliver activity remain unaltered throughout the shelf-life of the product?

This workshop will explore the latest developments in Predictive Design – building design tools linking structural understanding to effect and performance

Speakers include Dr. Graeme Cruickshank, Director of CPI’s UK National Formulation Centre.   Graeme spent 20 years in Procter and Gamble in a range of product design roles across a range of FMCGs and most recently was Global Associate Director for Strategic Alliances and Test Method Development. He brings an impressive track record in leading innovation and delivering value from strategic alliances across the globe.

This relatively small, focussed workshop session will provide a forum for open discussions from a cross section of life and chemical sciences companies to share ideas and discuss common themes.  The workshop will be in conjunction with the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), a UK based technology and innovation centre who are part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult.  CPI currently has facilities available to support innovations in Formulation and will manage the National Formulation Centre (NFC) upon its completion.
