Complimentary AAPS eLearning Session to Discuss Biopharmaceutical Modeling

Gastrointestinal physiology to serve as case study

The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) is a professional, scientific society of approximately 12,000 members employed in industry, academia, government and other research institutes worldwide. Founded in 1986, AAPS provides a dynamic international forum for the exchange of knowledge among scientists to enhance their contributions to public health. AAPS offers timely scientific programs, on-going education, information resources, opportunities for networking, and professional development.

AAPS is pleased to present a complimentary Webinar on Biopharmaceutic Modeling. This module is organized by the AAPS Physical Pharmacy and Biopharmaceutics (PPB) Section, and will be conducted by Kiyo Sugano, Ph.D.

This free eLearning opportunity will discuss fully mechanistic simulation of oral absorption, explicitly regarding various aspects of gastrointestinal physiology. Other discussion topics include: oral absorption, solubility, dissolution and permeation rates, precipitation, and integration. The presentation will also cover the strengths and limitations of available software programs.
