Conference Information



Initial Year





Meeting Cycle

24 Months

Conference Description

The goals of the conference are to bring together academic and industry leaders in pharmaceutical materials science, preclinical formulation science, automation science, biopharmaceutics and relevant applicable technologies to: Share methodologies that enable evaluation of potential drug candidates stagnating due to physical form and/or formulation challenges; Facilitate scientific and technological advances to increase efficiency in selection of formulations for preclinical and early clinical studies; Envision ways that science & technology could transform the current state in this area; Identify further knowledge gaps in scientific understanding and technological capabilities associated with this topic that can be discussed at future conferences.

The conference will highlight topics on maximizing exposure of potential drugs and compounds used in affecting relevant biological targets. Methodologies that can improve physical properties of materials, novel formulations that can help improve exposure, computational methodologies that can aid in compound selection and behavior, and instrumentation technologies that can be applied will be explored.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Preclinical Form and Formulation for Drug Discovery" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
