Copenhagen workshop on injectables - Current and future challenges

Join our 1- day workshop on injectables and the challenges it poses and meet the frontier scientists who will tell about the current status and challenges in this exciting field. Speakers include Patricia Turner and Marilyn E. Morris.

The emerging area of injectables has scientific interest. Subcutaneous, intradermal, and intramuscular injection of drugs and peptides and the interaction with the organism is only starting to be elucidated.

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, is pleased to invite all interested stakeholders to this 1-day workshop on injectables where exchange of scientific ideas, trends and options is possible.
