  2. 2. Pre-Conference Workshop Day: Monday 26th September 2011 WORKSHOP A 10:00 – 11:3011:00 Registration and Welcome CoffeeProtecting Amorphous Formulation IPPatenting amorphous forms is a key consideration for anyone looking to formulate an amorphous material. The cost of filing a form that can be later disputed is a costly expense and one that can be avoided by taking into consideration the correct IP protocols in the design and production of amorphous materials.The widely known case of GSK v Ranbaxy Pharma is a prime example of the cost to industry over disputed amorphous designs. Ranbaxy, already having shipped over $12m worth of stock and booked over $27m worth of orders before being taken to court over IP infringements on amorphous forms, is a case not wanting to be repeated. This interactive workshop will cover the key issues to consider and strategies to prevent IP complications and ways in which you can in tern protect you own formulation IPWhat will be covered: What you will learn:w Defining amorphous materials and the effect of this on IP claims w Strategies to protect amorphous formulations w Analysis techniques to formulate amorphous designs w How to avoid litigation against your amorphous IP w Case studies examples to successfully protect your amorphous formulation IP w Utilising the latest analytical techniques to formulate the best design strategyJason Gray, Commercial Manager, Biopharmaceutical Group, University of BradfordJason joined The University of Bradford in 2010 as Associate Lecturer and Commercial Manager. Jason gained his degree Biochemistry and chemistry in 2001. From this he completed his PhD at the University of Salford studying the formulation effects of proteins interactions on edible surfactants where he worked with Prof. Gordon Tiddy. After a Post Doctoral position at the University of Manchester Jason joined Zeneca in 1999 as a formulation scientist. In 2002 Jason joined the Merck Generics group of companies to head up their global Physical Properties Laboratories where Jason’s expertise within the field of physical properties led to several patent applications and he has been involved in many successful patent litigations worldwide. WORKSHOP B 12:00 – 14:30Development of Formulation Strategies for a Poorly Soluble Compound: Creating a Best PracticeStrategy ApproachUsing a combination of theoretical and practical knowledge application, participants will be able to formulate a best strategy approach to solve the key challenge of making a poorly soluble compound soluble; using amorphous solid dispersions. Utilising a combination of technology selection, manufacturing processes, form selection and excipient selection – this interactive workshop will give you a hands on look into formulating the most effective strategy to develop amorphous solid dispersions.What you will learn:w Enhance your knowledge of amorphous solid dispersions using the right technological profiling tools w Different formulation approaches to developing amorphous solid dispersionsw Taking a risk based approach to quantifying amorphous design strategiesSetu Roday, Principal Scientist, Vertex Media Partners Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities The Pharma IQ Amorphous Pharmaceutical Materials 2011 conference will be the perfect for leading service providers to meet senior-level decision makers in the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical industry implementing amorphous designs into R&D formulation strategies.
