Lecture by David Craik: Discovery of naturally occuring cyclic peptides and their applications in drug design (July 2013)

On the 9th July 2013, professor David Craik from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience of the university of Queensland (Australia), was invited to give a lecture about his research, which focuses on the application of NMR in drug design and on toxins, including conotoxins. His group has a particular focus on structural studies of disulfide-rich proteins/peptides, and on the discovery and applications of circular and novel protein/peptide topologies.

Posterpresentaties bachelorscriptie 2013 (June 2013)

Traditiegetrouw stelden de studenten van de 3de bachelor tijdens de posterpresentaties hun project van de Farmaceutische Bachelor Proef (FaBaP) voor. Een 20-tal projectgroepjes bundelden op een poster de resultaten van hun experimenteel werk, dat in diverse onderzoekslaboratoria van de Faculteit Farmaceutische Wetenschappen werd uitgevoerd. De studenten gaven een korte toelichting over hun project aan een vakkundige jury, die zowel uit medewerkers van onze faculteit als mensen uit de farmaceutische industrie bestond. Er werd met behulp van kritische vragen gepeild naar het inzicht van de studenten. Het werd een succesvolle editie. Enkele sfeerbeelden kan u vinden door te klikken op volgende link foto's

Invitation Symposium: "Biotech and advanced therapies: challenges and opportunities" - 19 April, 2013 (April 2013)

The board of VAPI-UPIP invites students and co-workers of Ghent University to the Symposium "Biotech and advanced therapies: challenges and opportunities".

This symposium is the opening of the EIPG General Assembly 2013 (European Industrial Pharmacists Group) which is hosted by VAPI-UPIP in Belgium. It will be a real occasion to get a sense of the situation of Biotech in Europe and to interact with famous experts in this topic.

Symposium: Quality Pharmaceutical Drugs: from Order to Patient (March 2013)

On Thursday 28th March 2013 DruQuaR lab organised in collaboration with Jimma University Laboratory of Drug Quality (JuLaDQ) a one-day interactive symposium in Jimma University, Jimma, Ethiopia. The symposium covered :

- quality of life;

- drug choises: evidence-based equals essential medicines?;

- good distribution practices (GDP): a neglected but critical quality aspect;

- the new regulatory system for quality pharmaceuticals in Ethiopia;

- strengths and threats for strong supply chain;

- quality-by-design (QbD): the new paradigm forward in pharmaceutical quality?;

- selected functional quality challenges: from specification settings to traceability.

Posterpresentatie Bachelorscriptie (Juni 2012)

Naar aanleiding van het vak Farmaceutische Bachelor Proef (FaBaP) maakten een 20-tal projectgroepjes een poster waarop hun experimenteel werk van de bachelorscriptie staat samengevat. Deze proeven werden uitgevoerd in de diverse onderzoekslaboratoria van de Faculteit Farmaceutische Wetenschappen, zodat een brede waaier aan farmaceutisch georiënteerde onderwerpen en technieken in de posters aan bod kwamen.

Alle groepjes stonden ter beschikking om tijdens de posterpresentatie een korte toelichting te houden op hun werk. Klik op de volgende link om de foto's van de verschillende groepjes te bekijken:
