Trends in Physical Properties of Drugs Trends in Physical Properties of Drugs
April 22, 2014 |
The physical properties of drugs influence all aspects of their discovery, development, formulation, and administration. They are key to efficacy, effective assays, and in vivo delivery. This course will discuss latest trends and state-of-the art of prediction and measurement of key properties. Properties important for enhanced efficacy, delivery, and formulation pKa, tautomerism, crystallization, others Computational prediction: What works - what doesn’t Experimental best practices
Integrating Human Factors Engineering (HFE) into Drug Delivery Integrating Human Factors Engineering (HFE) into Drug Delivery
January 22, 2013 |
In this DVD, we will provide a baseline understanding of the regulatory need, common practices and real world examples of integrating Human Factors Engineering into a drug development activity. Key topics to be addressed: Why you should care: Regulatory expectations for the application of HFE What to avoid: Right and wrong ways to apply HFE to your project Lessons from the field: Real world examples of HFE
Live-Cell Imaging Workshop Live-Cell Imaging Workshop
January 11, 2013 |
Recent developments in microscopy, fluorescent probes, cell manipulation, and image analysis have pushed the frontiers of live-cell imaging, allowing researchers to study cellular processes in real time and increasing detail. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Live-Cell Imaging Workshop DVD includes presentations on novel techniques, including FLIM-FRET microscopy methods for early cancer screening and detecting protein network interactions, Fluorescence by Unbound Excitation from Luminescence for high-content analysis, a system to monitor cells exposed to ionizing radiation, and innovative Tissue Dynamic Imaging.
