Master Class: Process Development & Scale Up in the Pharmaceutical Industry, School of Chemistry, NUI Galway

As part of their structured PhD programme, the School of Chemistry in NUI Galway, in association with the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC) in the University of Limerick, are providing a 2-day course on the development and scale-up of organic syntheses for the commercial manufacture of drug substances. Representatives from SSPC industry partner Roche are providing guest lectures.

The course will be run immediately before the 2014 Irish Universities Chemistry PhD colloquium, which is being held in NUI Galway on June 19 and 20.

 

The course will:

  • Be delivered by expert industrial practitioners
  • Focus on synthetic processes for “small molecule” drugs and address the organic, physical and analytical chemistry involved.
  • Cover process selection and development, technology transfer and on-going optimisation with reference to the safety, environmental, engineering, quality and regulatory disciplines involved.
  • Use real examples to illustrate the subject
  • The course is aimed at: - PhD students in chemistry and related disciplines. On completion of associated assignments the course is valued at 5 ECTS credits.

There will be a fee for non-NUIG attendees of €100. More information is available on the NUI Galway, School of Chemistry website. Contact Dennis Smith for more details: dennis.smith@nuigalway.ie   or Phone 087 677 5481
