MVA Good Morning Meeting – cGMP Natural & Synthetic Phospholipids for Complex Drug Delivery Systems and Vaccines

Learn about the benefits of phospholipids in pharmaceutical dosage forms and innovative drug delivery systems.

Natural and synthetic phospholipids are ideal multi-purpose excipients with an unrivalled safety profile in state-of-the-art pharmaceutical dosage forms. In innovative drug delivery systems phospholipids – as enabling excipients – are crucial for ensuring the efficacy of therapeutics and vaccines.
Within this presentation the focus will be on phospholipids for parenteral and pulmonary administration. Phospholipids can be found in different types of formulations, such as emulsions, liposomes, or solid lipid nanoparticles. Moreover, they can be administered to the lungs for local and systemic delivery of actives.

Join us in this seminar to learn more about the prominent role of phospholipids in pharmaceutical applications. In this seminar we will touch upon topics such as the benefits of phospholipids in:

•     mRNA vaccines and adjuvant systems
•     Pulmonary applications
•     Depot formulations

Date: Tuesday 20th of September 2022
Time: 9:00 – 11:00 CET
Venue: Medicon Valley Alliance, Arne Jacobsens Allé 15, 2300 Copenhagen S, Denmark – Meeting room: Auditorium
