On 19 March 2018, DECHEMA will hold a workshop on "Scale-up and GMP Production - Requirements, Challenges and Practical Implementation" in the DECHEMA-Haus in Frankfurt. Experts from Germany and the EU will talk about best practice examples and the gaps which still need to be addressed to bring nanomedicine from bench to bedside.

Where: DECHEMA, Theodor-Heuss-Allee 25, 60486 Frankfurt
When: 19 March 2018, 10:30am – 16:15pm
Fee: Free of charge
Information & Registration: http://dp-nbm.de/index.php?id=48 (Deadline 28 Feb 2018)


Take the opportunity to meet professionals in scale-up and the GMP compliant manufacturing of nanoparticles and nanopharmaceuticals and present your project to the community in an elevator pitch. Find out more about the availability of services to produce your own GMP batch for a clinical study and participate in the discussion about requirements to fulfill GMP compliant manufacturing as well as missing funding possibilities and gaps to translate your ideas into a nanomedical product.


The event targets the members of the German Platform NanoBioMedicine as well as professionals from universities, companies and institutions who are active in GMP production of pharmaceuticals and/or the scale-up of nanoformulations.


Call for pitches:
Present your product, company, institution or project in a 7 minutes pitch. To apply for this session, please send a catchy title and a short description of your contribution to Dr. Nils Bohmer (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) till 28 Feb 2018. You will be informed via email about the application process.


Where: DECHEMA, Theodor-Heuss-Allee 25, 60486 Frankfurt
