DST GUJCOST Seminar on “Protein and Peptide Drug delivery Systems: Challenges and Opportunities”

As we all know there is rapid progress in the field of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and gene technology in recent years because of which pharmaceutical industry is capable of producing large number of potential therapeutic proteins and peptides in commercial scale. But still there are few challenges are there as far as their oral bioavailability, stability, route of administration, container closure system and delivery systems is concerned. Keeping this in view this national seminar was organized. Total 166 delegates attended the national seminar. Different topics of seminar included: an overview of the aspects of drug product development for biosimilars in particular formulation development, stability studies and container closure selection”. “A look at aspects of drug product development as a whole for proteins and peptides and device development and delivery systems”, “Selective Targeting of Nanoparticles Mediated by Recognition Peptides”, “Recombinant Therapeutic Biologics- Novel and Biosimilars” and “IP Portfolio Management and Opportunity studies for new pharma/biotech projects”.
Renowned and eminent speakers from pharmaceutical industry and academics gave their expert talk. Dr. Pravin Nair, Assistant General Manager- Drug Product Development, Intas Pharmaceuticals Ltd (Biopharma Division) was guest of honour and Keynote speaker. Dr. Sanjay Tiwari, Associate Professor of Pharmaceutics, Maliba Pharmacy college, Uka Tarsadia University, gave an expert talk on “Selective Targeting of Nanoparticles Mediated by Recognition Peptides”. Ms. Shubhangi Argade gave a talk on Recombinant Therapeutic Biologics- Novel and Biosimilars. Mr. Bhaskar Dutta gave a talk on “IP Portfolio Management and Opportunity studies for new pharma/biotech projects”. Overall seminar was good with lots of information and knowledge sharing.
