Microencapsulation short course, June 18-20, 2019, Leeds, UK

his course covers the basic science and engineering of microencapsulation across a wide range of applications including the important stages of emulsi ication control, stability and release property control. Whilst the majority of the course involves emulsions, multiple emulsions and particle coating, we also provide a comprehensive description of the range of characterisation tools and their applicability. The emphasis is on understanding the fundamental behaviour of the interactions of the various components in such complex systems. This should provide the basis for a rational approach to formulating and producing micro encapsulates to meet a range of needs. The course offers a programme of academic and industry cooperation taking delegates from the basic science through to manufactured products. The Microencapsulation course is relevant to scientists and engineers in the chemical, petroleum, polymers, coatings, inks, food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and general chemical industries with responsibility for R&D projects, process engineering, manufacturing or product formulation involving incorporating micro-encapsulates into formulated products.

Advanced Formulation Strategies and Manufacturing Approaches for Challenging Drugs, June 5-6, 2019, Darmstadt, Germany

This free two-day event with a hands-on lab session in the Evonik laboratories will be an excellent opportunity for lab managers and senior scientists from formulation development, process optimization, scale-up and production to learn about enabling formulation approaches and advantageous manufacturing setups. But it may also be of high relevance for participants from academia. Focus topics will be: Solubility enhancement, Tailored release profiles, 3D printing for oral solid dosage forms, Approaches for better compliance, Advances in pharmaceutical production. International experts and guest speakers from industry and academia will present relevant topics, industrial case studies and insights to novel technologies. Furthermore, the agenda will provide much room for expert discussions and know-how exchange. Attendees will be able to directly apply their learnings from this seminar to their daily work.

22nd International Symposium on Microencapsulation, September 25-29, 2019, Savador, Brazil

It is our great pleasure and honor to co-host the 22nd International Symposium on Microencapsulation together with the International Microencapsulatio Society and the Federal University of Bahia. This well-established series of international symposia started in 1972 as a forum for scientific discussions in the microencapsulation field. The meetings have been held at approximately 2 yearly intervals.

Powder Characterisation, May 14-16, 2019, Leeds, UK

This short course will outline the principles and methods for characterising the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of powders at length sca es ranging from molecular level to single particles and to bulk levels. Sample preparation and the state-of-the-art techniques for particle characterisation will be detailed. The course is delivered by over 10 presenters with internationally-leading expertise in their own speciality fields. The outcome of the course should enable you to choose what and how to characterise the powder and suspension properties, and to diagnose particular process and product issues of interest.”

Fluid Bed Processing, May 15-16 2019 Faculty of Engineering, University of Leeds

“Fluidised beds are widely used in industry due to their characteristic fluid like properties of good mixing and heat transfer. Applications of flui beds range from combustion in power stations, catalytic reactors to the engineering of particles via methods such as low density agglomeration and encapsulation. This new course focuses on the use of fluid beds in particle engineering area and covers: • the basic principles behind fluidisation, • the importance of particle properties, • the impact of bed design on the structure and optimal operation of fluid beds, both batch and continuous. The course is grounded in practical experience gained across numerous industrial sectors by a range of speakers from academia, equipment manufacturers and end users. The scientific principles of fluid bed operation will be reinforced by a number of practical demonstrations which show the theory in practice.”

PhD in Seafood Science and Technology is looking for a Postdoctoral position in Encapsulation of bioactive materials

I have PhD in Seafood Science and Technology from Gorgan University of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources of Iran, and I am looking for a pos doctoral or assistant researcher position in Encapsulation of bioactive materials for fortifying food products. During my PhD studies, I optimised the encapsulation of fish protein hydrolysate and fish oil in the complexes of protein (whey protein concentrate) and carbohydrates (Inulin and Fucoidan) as wall materials using double emulsion by freeze- and spray dryer, under the supervision of Prof. Bahareh Shabanpour. I was extracted the fish protein hydrolysate (from underutilised fish) and Fucoidan (from brown seaweed) and we fortified the yogurt using the obtained microcapsules. I have been trained under supervision of Prof. Trinidad Pérez Palacios and Prof. Teresa Antequera Rojas for a period of 9 months through the project from the Spanish Ministry: Advance in the study of the microencapsulation of omega-3 fatty acid to enrich meat products. I am highly motivated, hard-working, creative individual who works well independently as well as collaboratively on teams of scientists from diverse backgrounds.

Emulsification and encapsulation by soft matter techniques, ACS Fall Meeting, San Diego, 25-29 August 2019

The soft matter community is working actively on the generation of new types of colloids, i.e. nanoparticles of interesting actives (drugs, tracers, b omolecules of any sorts) or nanocapsules integrating these in their core. Different soft techniques exist nowadays to perform so, including spontaneous emulsification (of any kind) or emulsion polymerization, to prepare e.g. polymersomes or nanostructured particles, respectively. The release of the active, either through natural or targeted degradation, or by an external trigger, is also a field of constant discovery and interest. This ACS fall meeting session aims at gathering under the same scope biologist, pharmacologists, chemists and physicists interested in the protection and release of any types of actives as well as the formation of structure colloids. We will cover the preparation, the characterization and application of these small objects and structured colloids in a range of applications including agro, cosmetic, food or pharmaceutical applications.
