Importance & Scope:

Drug delivery refers to approaches, formulations, technologies, and systems for transporting a pharmaceutical compound in the body as needed to safely achieve its desired therapeutic effect.This conference will discuss effective formulation and delivery technologies for enhancing solubility and drug delivery. Drug delivery-2015 aims to aggregate leading experts from around the world who will discuss on formulation and delivery, and show how they are developing poorly soluble drugs into scientifically sound, patient-centric formulations, and reducing their product development timelines.It also provides the chance for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the fields of Drug delivery.

Drug delivery-2015 will showcase new and innovative technologies by renowned scientists. It benefits to pharmacological, researchers, professors, and companies. Conferences also benefits and share knowledge between scientist, doctors and delegates. Exchange of idea among companies and they share knowledge to each other about their product at the conference leading to lead to Public- private partnerships and collaborations.  The university member attend conferences to know and share about what research has already been done and what research is going to be done in the area of drug delivery. We bring together business, creative, and technology leaders from the Drug Deliver industry for the most current and relevant.

Why Houston?

Houston is the most populous city in Texas and the fourth most populous city in the United States. Houston received the official nickname of "Space City" in 1967 because it is the location of NASA's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center.
