Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to Postpone the 2020 ODD Conference until 2021

The Oral Drug Delivery 2021 Conference is a 3-day event that will exhibit the most recent and cutting-edge findings on human physiology and drug development. Day 1 and Day 2 will host the 4th International Symposium on the BA/BE of oral drug products and their journey from API’s to marketed products. A series of speakers, panel discussions, and poster presentations will offer insight and information on formulation development, advancements in biopharmaceutical sciences, and future drug delivery technologies. Day 3 will be a celebratory workshop to honor the lifetime achievements of Professor Gordon L. Amidon. This event will reflect on the history of pharmaceutical sciences and the process of pioneering a vision for future drug delivery strategies.

Benefits of the conference
Conference attendees will benefit in learning about oral product performance analysis, quality control, and regulatory challenges by reviewing case studies and lectures centered around pharmaceutical product change applications, new generic product ANDA applications, and assuring therapeutic benefits and the safety of new drugs for public health.

Who should attend?
This conference welcomes industry and regulatory professionals, scientists, faculty, and graduate students. Those who have had the pleasure of knowing Professor Gordon Amidon or have been influenced by his work are invited to join the Celebratory Workshop and party after.
