Controlled Release Delivery Conference 2018

SMi Group21 - 22 March, London, UK.
An industry-leading show, SMi have been running this conference for 15 years - a testament of how vital this particular focus is to the biotech and pharma sector. As physicians and scientists continue to find strategies to assist in simplifying treatment schedules for patients, a pharma focus continues to move towards innovative controlled release technologies to improve drug transport to target.

Moreover, with the global oral controlled release drug delivery technology market expected to expand at 7.2% CAGR between 2017-2027 (with an estimated revenue of US$50B by 2027), now is the time to get ahead of the game by exploring and understanding innovations in drug delivery, nanoparticles/nanomedicine & QbD, CNS drug delivery and therapeutic application.
