Recording: Using Nanotechnology to Improve Excipients

Recording from Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Nanotechnology, the science of the very small, is rapidly evolving. It enables exciting improvements in many applications, and excipients are no exception! Pharmaceutical scientists, formulators, and excipient manufacturers have only just begun to explore the many ways for nanotechnology to improve drug delivery systems.

Even within the excipient/pharmaceutical industry, however, the principles and applications of nanotechnology are not necessarily familiar to stakeholders. Our expert presenters will bring you up to speed quickly on the basics of nanotechnology and its potential to, among other things, create new excipients and enhance existing ones.
The presenters will also discuss examples of nanoparticles which can enhance the efficiency of drugs as well as provide additional benefits offered for pharmaceutical development.

Learning Objectives
At the completion of this webinar, you should be able to:
> Identify how nanotechnology takes advantage of size
> Identify how physical properties can impact the biological activity of nanoparticles
> Discuss the regulatory environment for nanotechnology products
> Discuss how nanotechnology can apply to excipients
