The 15th annual Garnet E. Peck Symposium in Pharmacy will be held March 7, hosted by the Department of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy, the Dr. Garnet E. Peck Graduate Scholarship, the College of Pharmacy and the Anderson Lecture Fund. The symposium will be held at the Holiday Inn Lafayette-City Centre, 515 South St., Lafayette.

Co-chaired by IPPH faculty members Elizabeth Topp and Qi (Tony) Zhou, the symposium will have the theme “Pharmaceutical Manufacturing." The program features presentations by renowned pharmaceutical researchers as well as poster sessions and presentations from graduate students.

This year’s event also will include the “Three Minute Thesis” competition, in which graduate students will pitch their thesis research to the audience in three minutes or less. Voting will then take place to determine first, second, and third prize awards, and the winning students will receive up to $250 in scholarships.

* Nien-Hwa Linda Wang, Purdue, “Fundamental Principles and Enabling Technologies for the Design of Batch and Continuous Chromatography Processes.”

* Robert (Bill) Williams, University of Texas at Austin, “Thermal Processing Enhances Drug Delivery of Poorly Water Soluble Drugs – Process Selection.”  

* Ali Shakouri, Purdue, “Roll-to-Roll (R2R) Manufacturing of Smart Pharmaceuticals.”

* Qi (Tony) Zhou, Purdue, “Innovative Technologies for Spray Drying and Characterization of Pharmaceutical Solids.”

The event honors the late Garnet E. Peck, professor emeritus of industrial and physical pharmacy, and his contributions to the pharmaceutical sciences, including the development of latex-based tablet coatings that have been used in the industry for more than 35 years.

The registration fee is $375 for non-Purdue attendees; $250 for Purdue faculty; $250 for Purdue staff, postdocs, or visiting scholars; and $170 for Purdue students. Fee includes lunch, snacks and the evening reception. The registration deadline is Feb. 21.
