"Multi-Scale Model Development and Validation of Wet Granulation Processes"
Over the past decade, Quality by Design (QbD) has gained importance in the pharmaceutical industry to manage risk, increase product quality, reduce cost and satisfy regulatory requirements. A more fundamental model-based understanding of pharmaceutical processes aids significantly in the development of a QbD approach. This seminar will focus on developing such fundamental and science-based models via population balance model and discrete element model methods, for a wet granulation process which is a critical unit operation in pharmaceutical drug product manufacturing and in the wider particulate process industry.
