An exciting collaborative funding opportunity for SMEs involved in paediatric formulations to work with large pharma.
The Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS) is hosting a workshop to identify SMEs to work alongside Pharma members of the Industrial Leadership Group of the Formulation Special Interest Group (SIG) (including large pharma) to apply for funding to address the challenges of taste masking for paediatric formulations. SMEs with technologies applicable to this area are invited to contribute to the proposal and, if possible, attend a workshop at the DeVere Orchard Hotel, East Midlands Conference Centre, University of Nottingham on Wednesday 22nd May 10am-4pm. This is a great opportunity to attract funding for your business to support and increase research, development and engagement with large pharma and academia.

The aim of the workshop is to develop radical generic answers for pharma in this area hence all potential collaborators with experience in this area (pharma or other) are invited to attend. The session will develop a strategy to deliver resolutions in this area and will be used to engage with relevant funding bodies for support. Please register by Tuesday 21st May 2013 at the e-mail below. Due to the short notice of this meeting, if you are interested in this area and would be willing to contribute but cannot attend please register your details and interests by e-mailing [email protected]. Teleconference facilities will be available at this meeting should you wish to dial in.

Problem Statement:
Lack of a generic platform for taste-masking of pharmaceutical compounds: The pharmaceutical industry is obliged to provide a suitable paediatric formulation for all new products at time of filing. To date there is no generic technology and limited progress in the areas of modelling, suitable analytical tools in the area or palatability or biopharm understanding and in-vivo/in-vitro correlation to assess potential formulation solutions. The aim of this work will provide opportunities to deliver a palatable dose to the patient without impeding its release profile.
