The annual Peck Symposium honors the late Garnet E. Peck, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of the department of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy at Purdue University. Dr. Peck left a record of enduring contributions to the pharmaceutical sciences, including the development of latex-based tablet coatings that have been used in the industry for more than thirty-five years. The goal of this event is to stimulate interest in the symposium's focus areas and to identify opportunities for new research.
