3rd EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON PHARMACEUTICS
25 to 26 March 2019 | Bologna, Italy
Short papier submission dealine 15 November 2018
We kindly would like to inform you of the date shift of our 3rd European Conference on Pharmaceutics in Bologna next year.
The Bologna Children's Book Fair with more than 28 000 visitors and 1400 exhibitors changed the date to the same time as we already announced our conference. In order to avoid high trade fair prices for hotel and flights, we decided to change the date as well. You will find the reasons in the formal communication of Bologna Fair Group here.
We are looking forward to meet you at the meeting in Bologna
With the best regards,
Your organising team of the European Conference on Pharmaceutics!

Catherine TULEU, PhD
Professor in Peadiatric Pharmaceutics
UCL School of Pharmacy

Catherine Tuleu (Reader, University College London School of Pharmacy) is a UK-qualified French pharmacist. Her first experience at UCL (The School of Pharmacy, University of London then and until 2012) was as a postdoc student, and then a research assistant in the Department of Pharmaceutics with Professor Michael Newton. After a stint as a lecturer at Kingston University, she returned to UCL in January 2003 as Pfizer Paediatric Drug Delivery Lecturer for the then newly established Centre for Paediatric Pharmacy Research. Catherine has traditionally been interested in gastrointestinal drug delivery, particularly colonic targeting, but since 2003 her main focus of research has been on drug delivery systems for neonates, infants and children. “ In the recent years, says Catherine, my research has focused on the most challenging paediatric subset: neonates – with a focus on those in low resource settings, as well as formulating for rare and neglected diseases.” She has been involved in various projects ranging from repurposing drugs, designing fast disintegrating tablets for a nipple shield to dose babies while breastfeeding, taste masking to exploring the rectal route for antimicrobial drug delivery, and gaining knowledge on the acceptability of flexible solid oral dosage forms, such as orodispersible films, dispersible tablets and multiparticulates. She has also been working on establishing methods to assess the taste of medicines in vitro, part of an emerging research field: sensory pharmaceuticsTM She was recently promoted and not only she joins the minority of female professors but she also becomes the first Professor of Paediatric Pharmaceutics.
