CRS Young Scientist Workshops

CRS Young Scientist Workshop #1

Mucosal Drug and Gene Delivery: Barriers and Opportunities

Saturday, July 14
Chaired by Olivia Merkel, Wayne State University, U.S.A., Emmanuel Ho, University of Manitoba,  Canada, and Joshua Reineke, Wayne State University, U.S.A.

This is a workshop not to be missed by young scientists. Local drug and gene delivery offers various advantages, however many local administration routes involve delivery to the dynamic and complex mucosa. The mucosal layer and underlying membrane is involved in the absorption and secretion of molecules and is an important target for vaccine development and treatment of diseases. In this workshop, all relevant barriers will be discussed and successful approaches for various administration routes will be presented.

CRS Young Scientist Workshop #2

Professional and Self Development for Young Scientists and Protégés – Time Management

Sunday, July 15
Chaired by Teresa Virgallito, Microtek Laboratories, Inc., U.S.A. and Padma V. Devarajan, Institute of Chemical Technology, India

Trainers: Buket Aksu, Santa Farma Ilac San AS, Turkey, and Teresa Virgallito, Microtek Labs, Inc., U.S.A.

Effectively managing time is extremely important for young scientists. This workshop will cover time management skills essential for coping with busy schedules, planning and executing projects, and meeting deadlines. Special emphasis will be on time management techniques, and utilization of those techniques to function effectively under intense pressure. Applying the skills learned in this workshop will ensure optimal effectiveness when undertaking tasks. Above all, young scientists will gain a clearer understanding of the value of time.
