23rd Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference and 9th International Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry | June 11 - 13, 2019

Green Design in the Pharmaceutical Industry: From Discovery to Commercial Processes

Session Organizer: Juan Colberg, Green Chemistry Program Leader and Senior Director, API Technology, Pfizer

The pharmaceutical industry is under continuous pressure to discover, develop and commercialize new life-saving drugs for patients, mostly under accelerated timelines. In addition, customers and stakeholders are demanding more and more the use of greener and environmentally sustainable processes to manufacture these products. These two approaches are not opposed to each other but very much aligned, and Green Chemistry is a venue to connect both.

This Symposium will feature speakers who are active in developing and using novel green technologies across all stages of drug discovery and development to help achieve these to important goals. Presenters will include researchers from both, academia and industry.
