Elisa Alessandrini, from University College London (UCL), recently attended the 9th annual MIBio conference on behalf of the EPTRI consortium. The event took place at Downing College (Cambridge) on the 13th of November. Elisa presented a poster about the EPTRI project focusing on the expertise and gaps in the paediatric formulation science area.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Stability of biopharmaceuticals. From molecular interactions to successful products”. The purpose of this event was to bring the biopharmaceutical formulation community together in order to discuss the latest developments in the field.
The poster presented by Elisa was entitled “EPTRI – European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure: the bridge through the expertise and the existing gaps to drive the innovation in paediatric formulation”. It provided an overview of the EPTRI project and focused the attention on the results of the EPTRI survey on paediatric formulation. In particular, it showed the number of research units across Europe available in the field of paediatric formulation science, the types of drugs they are working on and the expertise they can offer, as well as the existing gaps.
