Experts participating

Dr.  Allan S. Myerson, Professor of the Practice of Chemical Engineering,
Massachusetts  Institute of Technology (USA)

" Crystallization is a crucial purification step in the pharmaceutical,
chemical and food industries.Control of purity, crystal size, crystal shape
and polymorphism is a major factor in crystallization process development and
downstream product development ."

Dr. Myerson presents on continuous crystallization of pharmaceuticals which is
one of his core area of expertise.

Dr.  Robin Rogers, Robert Ramsay Chair of Chemistry, University  of Alabama
(USA) and Editor-in-Chief Crystal Growth & Design

" Understanding and controlling crystallization of an API can make or break a
company, while finding new crystalline forms or crystallization processes can
lead to new and exciting business opportunities. "

Dr. Robin will be discussing issues around what happens when co-crystals don't
crystallize.

Dr. Preetam Ghogale , Head Pre-formulations, Piramal Enterprises

" Crystallization pays! You just need to understand it better ."

Dr. Preetam presents the role of solubility during crystallization by
evaluating different solvent systems and combinations to achieve right
crystallization.

Other experts include :

  *Dr. Agam Sheth , Principal Scientist, Merck Research Laboratories (USA)
  *Dr. Anant Paradkar, Director, Center for Pharmaceutical Engineering
    Science, University of Bradford (UK) 
  *Mr.  Sethu Madhavan , Director Manufacturing, Teva API India and many
    more.

The Crystalization conference has been designed keeping the science for
business perspective in mind. It addresses the most critical challenges of the
pharmaceutical industry. There are discussions around techniques to achieve
smooth scale up involving crystallization procedure. Furthermore, the
important area of particle size, which is a key for developing APIs through
crystallization,will be covered in depth. Crystallization is of vital
importance for generics working on Polymorphs and hence there is a highlighted
session on how crystallization can be effectively carried out to develop
desired polymorphs.

This event has already generated interest in the industry with delegate
registrations made by companies like Cipla , Ranbaxy Laboratories , Lupin ,
USV , Unimark Remedies , Shasun Pharmaceuticals , Alkem Laboratories ,
Aurobindo Pharma , Watson Pharma , Aarti Industries , Vardhman Chemtech , DSM
Sinochem India , Srikrishna Pharma and so on.
