Patheon scientist to give keynote address at Lyophilisation USA Conference

Ronald Pate, lyophilisation development scientist, will present 'Cycle Development Basic Concepts and Optimizing the Process' on Wednesday, 29 April

A top scientific expert at Patheon, a leading global provider of high-quality drug development and delivery solutions to the pharmaceutical and biopharma industries, will be the keynote speaker at this year's Lyophilisation USA Conference, which takes place on 29-30 April at the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel in Iselin, N.J.

Ronald Pate, lyophilisation development scientist, will present 'Cycle Development Basic Concepts and Optimizing the Process' on Wednesday, 29 April at 9.10am. Pate, who has 15 years of freeze drying and lyophilisation experience, will highlight how to scale-up and optimise development to enable shorter cycle times and cost efficient processing of lyophilised formulations, while ensuring consistency within batches. He will discuss the science of lyophilisation as it relates to freeze drying process control, and the rationale for recommending lyophilsation to clients.

'I look forward to speaking about lyophilisation cycle development,' said Pate. 'Lyophilisation is often the only way to make a drug substance viable for large scale commercial production. Implicit with the responsibility of developing a safe, effective and efficient lyophilisation process, is the reward of knowing that millions of lives will be improved by the quality of your work.'
