The Young Scientist workshops are specifically designed with the interests of young scientists in mind. Young scientists are typically students and early career scientists under the age of 40 years, or those with less than five years’ experience in the field of delivery science.
Please indicate your attendance when registering. These workshops are complimentary to registered meeting attendees.
The Science of Publishing
Saturday, July 12 • 08:00 - 12:00
Chaired by Adam Bohr, Institute Galien Paris-Sud, France, and Jorrit Water, University of
Publishing is the cornerstone of scientific research and of great importance in the career of every academic. This workshop aims to educate young scientists in the different aspects of publishing and peer review in scientific journals, as well as highlight and discuss current controversies such as open access journals, scientific integrity, impact factors, and more.

Novel Technologies in Solubility Enhancement
Saturday, July 12 • 13:00 - 17:00
Chaired by Marcus Brewster, Johnson & Johnson, Belgium, and Joke Meeus, KU Leuven, Belgium
Contemporary drug pipelines contain an increasing number of poorly water-soluble candidates. To overcome this problem, solubilityenhancing technologies often focus on impacting aspects of the Noyes–Whitney relationship by increasing dissolution rate or drug solubility. In view of this, the workshop aims to provide a context for deciding whether formulation enablement is necessary and which technique is most appropriate for which problem. Moreover, novel screening, analytical, and manufacturing approaches are within the scope of this training forum.
Communication and Networking: How to Develop and Utilize These Skills for a Successful Career
Sunday, July 13 • 08:00 - 12:00
Chaired by Shahriar Absar, FDA, U.S.A., and Kaushal Dave, South Dakota State University,
In this modern era of technology, networking and communication have become integral components of a successful career either in academia or in industry. While scientific meetings have long served as the platform for networking with professionals across the globe, online sites have also become critically important to widening one’s professional network. This workshop will feature speakers that are experts in the field and will outline the tools that are necessary to sharpen communication and networking skills.
