Abstract

Bionanotechnology offers new approaches to the field of medicine, ranging from advanced tissue engineering of tissues and organs to new nano drug delivery paradigms at the single cell level for pharmaceuticals. Microfabrication technology allows construction of cellular sized or smaller devices made of new materials for cell land tissue engineering. Nanofabrication uses biomimicry to create nanoscale “nanodelivery” devices to provide advanced targeted and delivery of pharmaceuticals to individual human cells in the new field of nanomedicine. High-throughput devices permit examination of very large numbers of drugs and their interactions with single cells at the gene level. These new technologies and perspectives will lead to innovative ways for advanced pharmaceutical manufacturing in the 21st century.

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together top scientists from India and the United States to present their latest work and to discuss future international scientific collaborative partnerships. This one and a half day symposium will also feature a special second half day mini-symposium and panel discussion, “Transforming Pharmaceutical Manufacturing in the 21st Century.”

Major changes are taking place in pharmaceutical manufacturing. These changes include quality by design (QBD) and process analytical technology (PAT). Likewise, there has been a major increase in bionanotechnology. One report indicates that there are 20 nanotechnology products on the market. This panel discussion will explore the relationship between pharmaceutical manufacturing and bionanotechnology. The following questions will be addressed: (1) What are the most important changes in manufacturing? (2) What is manufacturing science? (3) What is QBD? and (5) How can manufacturing science, PAT, and QBD be applied to bionanotechnology?
