2nd HPAPI conference

2nd Annual Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients conference

The global market for highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients is currently on a growth fast track, largely driven by its major use in oncology for cancer treatment and more often in the form of antibody drug conjugates (ADCs). Over a quarter of drugs worldwide now contain HPAPIs, as they have proven to be more effective than other APIs. 

However, working with APIs high in potency and cytotoxicity comes with many regulations and requirements, and presents pharmaceutical companies with challenges such as handling, containment, cost and security questions.

From 21-22 May 2018, SMi will present its 2nd Annual Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients conference at the Holiday Inn, Kensington Forum, London, UK.

The conference will cover many important and in-demand aspects of the HPAPI industry, creating a networking platform for industry professionals and key players to share their knowledge and find new innovative solutions.

This year’s Chair will be Justin Mason-Home, director of HPAPI Project Services Limited.

  • Ildikó Zeigler, Validation Expert, Gedeon Richter
  • Ulrich Ruemenapp, Head of Launch Preparation and Coordination, Bayer
  • Vincenzo De Sio, HPAPI Specialist, Cristália
