Sunday, June 14, 2015, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Gaylord National Convention Center, Washington, DC
Innovations throughout the biomed/pharma industry are increasingly enabled by nanosc ale structured materials. The need to characterize materials throughout their life cycle has inspired innovations in methods and techniques. This full-day workshop provides an overview of relevant characterization methods in the morning and focuses on applications and case studies in the biomed/pharma industry in the afternoon.
Academic and industry audience from advanced undergraduates to seasoned professionals who wish to learn about nanoscale characterization methods in general, and specifically about real-world applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry. This workshop will be relevant for scientists and engineers engaged in research and development, production, and in quality control and safety assessment.
The morning will provide an overview of general characterization methods including scanning probe microscopy, electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), Raman spectroscopy, optical microscopy, x-ray diffraction, particle size analysis, and secondary ion mass spectroscopy.
The afternoon will provide case studies from the biomed/pharma industry. Nanoscale characterization methods to elucidate both surface and internal morphology and composition will be exemplified in the areas of medical device technology and drug delivery. Specific technological topics will include drug-eluting and lubricious coatings of inserts such as stents and catheters; drug-eluting balloons and electrical-lead collars; compositional profiles of metals; and pharmaceutical tablets and nanoscale drug-encapsulating particles.
