Therapeutical proteins – focus on analysis and formulations
The Swedish Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences is organising a minisymposium to review the state of the art of analytical tools and formulation concepts as applied to therapeutic proteins, and to highlight the needs of new innovative solutions for remaining problems. More information

Beam time 3-4 September 2018

A successful beamtime at Soleil in Paris. At the beamline Swing we measured SAXS/WAXS on protein in solution and protein complexation, investigating the effect of concentration and temperature, among other things.

Joint workshop NextBioForm and Swedish Drug Delivery Forum 27-28 June 2018
NextBioForm organised a successful first joint workshop for NextBioForm and SDDF (coordinated by Uppsala University) in Lund on June 27-28 2018. Many thanks to the local organisers at LTH and MAX IV for the excellent arrangements! This was a good opportunity learn more about both centres and the research projects, both centres work on different aspects of drug formulation and drug delivery. Several interesting talks were held and nice posters were shown. The purpose of the joint workshop was to get acquainted and share information on our activities, and included in the program was a tour to MAXIV.
