Last week we visited APS PharmSci, a conference that addresses the need for sustainability, diversity as well as emerging sciences in the pharmaceutical industry. The conference took place at the amazing University of Greenwich in the Maritime College with a black tie event held in their grand dining room, Painted Hall.

The exhibition did an excellent job of highlighting the difficulties and challenges in the constantly shifting landscape of modern pharmaceutical science. We had a great time meeting everyone and taking in the sights and sounds of such an amazing event. The application of 3D printing technologies in the design and manufacture of pharmaceuticals was a standout topic, showcasing an exciting new array of possibilities in healthcare. There is already a commercially available 3D printed platform for the development and manufacture of rapid oral dispersible tablets. 3D printing also expands the opportunities in personalised medicines, the tailoring of medicines to an individual’s needs, which could lead to this novel technology being the future of healthcare.

We would like to thank the organizers for putting on such an incredible event and we can’t wait to go again next year!
