DRPI-Japan & SEA 2023


DRPI Summary

On July 16, 2012, the Society for Pharmaceutical Dissolution Science (SPDS) was established in Mumbai, India, and has since become the go-to community for academic researchers and industry professionals worldwide. The organization's primary objective is to lead and advance scientific research in dissolution testing and related areas. This has been reflected in the organization of one of the most prominent international conferences, Dissolution Research Presentations International (DRPI), which is further supported by the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS). In 2023, the Japan & Southeast Asia (JSEA) chapter of the DRPI was established. Chaired by Professor Matthias G. Wacker from the National University of Singapore, it is catering to one of the most dynamic and active research landscapes in the world and invites submissions from countries all over Asia. This is reflected by our scientific committee members.
