Challenges and Solutions in Drug Development

Trends and Innovations in R&D Informatics

September 21st, 2017

Auditorium, Bracco Imaging S.p.A.

Via Caduti di Marcinelle, 13 20134 Milano


S-IN Soluzioni Informatiche is pleased to invite you to the meeting “Challenges and Solutions in Drug Development". The meeting will focus on the informatics that supports scientists in the management of chemical and analytical data with an in-depth attention to process-related impurities and Design of Experiments (DoE). Drug Development takes years, involves many process chemists and analysts, and generates huge amount of information, including heterogeneous analytical data (NMR, LC/UV/MS). Groups involved in the impurities identification and control have their own systems for capturing and interpreting data, but no single integrated system linking information together. There is a significant need for collaborative platforms designed to uniform and share manufacturing process-related impurities knowledge.

You will hear from specialists and scientists coming from the industry how they daily face with challenges in the drug development lifecycle through real cases.

Participation to the event is free of charge, but registration is required. To register, please send an email to with your name and your affiliation by the 7th of September 2017.
Coffee and lunch breaks are included.
The meeting is sponsored and hosted by Bracco Imaging S.p.A.
