Physical Pharmacy and Biopharmaceutics Section



Join today! 

The Physical Pharmacy and Biopharmaceutics (PPB) section is composed of AAPS members whose scientific interests are in the physicochemical and biological factors that impact the design and delivery of small molecules and biologics. PPB is a multidisciplinary section that focuses on preformulation, drug physical form, biopharmaceutics, drug absorption, enabled technologies such as nanotechnology and amorphous dispersions, and drug delivery systems design performance including targeted drug delivery. The PPB section provides an interactive forum for the exchange of information pertaining to the selection of developable drug candidates at the drug discovery-development interface, characterization of drug substance and excipients, studies of relationships between drugs' physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties and physiological considerations at the cellular, organ, and whole animal levels, and overcoming drug absorption and delivery barriers via drug delivery technologies.
