AttendeesApproximately 66 people attended the 4th David J.W. Grant Symposium on Solid-State Pharmaceutics, held June 18–20. The event brought together leading researchers from academia and industry to share their most cutting edge research.

The symposium covered a variety of topics including crystallization of pharmaceuticals, structure-properties of pharmaceuticals, amorphous pharmaceuticals and dissolution, and trends in solids development.

“We are very proud that, in just a few short years, the David Grant Symposium has become the premier conference for solid-state pharmaceutics,” said Professor Changquan Calvin Sun, the conference’s program chair.

The symposium is held in honor of the late David Grant, a professor and William and Mildred Peters Endowed Chair. Grant was globally recognized for his expertise and contributions in several areas, most notably in the field of pharmaceutical materials science. His research enabled pharmaceutical companies to make safe and effective drug products with reproducible and predictable performance. The next symposium will be held in 2020.
