“All over the world, scientists are working to meet the numerous needs for new and improved treatment strategies. This November, we will gather our field at Uppsala Concert & Congress to share up to date knowledge and pave the way for future innovations. Simultaneously, we will place great emphasis on networking and adding renewed energy to existing contacts,” says Alexandra Teleki, Center co-Director of SweDeliver.

The conference's scientific program includes four sessions highlighting Delivery of Biologics, Drug delivery and formulation, Virtual drug delivery and Advanced analytics and characterization methods - each led by a specially invited expert reporting directly from the research front. Also on the list of key note speakers is Clare Strachan, Professor at the University of Helsinki, who will visit Uppsala to participate in the John Sjögren seminar, this year with focus on future challenges in drug development.

“As national competence centers with complementary tasks, we are experiencing important synergistic effects in creating joint forums for the exchange of knowledge. We have for the past two years arranged a seminar series where our junior employees present their projects, and will at our upcoming conference include, among many things, two poster sessions and a discounted participation fee for PhD Students in order to further strengthen the interactions between today's and future researchers,” says Christel Bergström, Center Director of SweDeliver.

Preparations for the conference are ongoing and new program items are published continuously. Registration is open.
