Pharma satellite meeting

The EPDIC17 Pharma Satellite Meeting will take place after EPDIC17 on 04 June 

This satellite meeting is designed to create a forum for the exchange of knowledge and cutting-edge ideas among those interested in the combined fields of X-ray Diffraction (XRD), including synchrotron, and pharmaceutical sciences. This satellite meeting will provide the opportunity for industrial, academic, and government scientists to hear from leading experts in the area of diffraction methods for pharmaceutical materials characterization.
Invited speakers will provide technical presentations related to the analysis of pharmaceutical materials.
