On 19 & 20 September 2019, Munich (Germany) we have hosted the BioTech Pharma Summit: Drug Delivery & Formulation 2019 conference. This year's event brought together leaders and senior industry experts in formulation, delivery and product development. Presentations will assess recent technological innovations and discuss their impact on product improvement and patient experience.


Over 200+ delegates representing global pharmaceutical organisations, leading biotech companies and internationally renowned academic institutions


Drug delivery systems have been gaining importance in the last few years. Such systems can be easily developed and are capable of promoting the modified release of the active ingredients in the body. The opportunities and challenges of nanomedicines in drug delivery from synthetic/natural sources to their clinical applications will also be discussed. This year, at the DDF Summit in Munich, we will see innovation and breakthroughs at all levels of drug and formulation development.


The DDF Summit features never-before-heard case studies focusing on the industry’s most urgent needs for improving solubility and therapeutic performance.


The BioTech Pharma Summit: Drug Delivery & Formulation 2019 provides drug delivery and specialty pharmas with a platform to present their technologies and get the latest insights on what the delivery and formulation needs are and presents a strategic level program for pharma and business development professionals with a thorough overview of the latest drug delivery technologies available along with an update on deals and opportunities to improve therapies and extend the life cycle of a drug.
