On 28 February 2017 (bio)Pharma Ireland, a national working group led by SSPC and comprising representation from PMTC, NIBRT, SFI, EI, IDA and BPCI, organized a high-level seminar entitled The Future of (Bio)Pharmaceutical Manufacturing in Brussels. This international seminar, brought together over 80 participants from over 10 countries representing industry, academia, the EU commission and parliament, and other interested stakeholders to explore the future of advanced drug manufacturing in Europe. The purpose of the seminar was to communicate the importance of fostering an innovative environment in Europe to sustain the biopharmaceutical manufacturing sector into the future.
Is there an art to making the perfect cup of coffee? Or is it just science? This event investigates the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) of the perfect cup of coffee.
Come join in Canteen, 30 Mallow Street, Limerick @ 6.30pm on Monday, March 13th, to learn all about the perfect cup of coffee. The event will consist of three brief 10 minute talks from our two scientists, Kevin and Chris followed by the art in a perfect cup from Canteen’s resident barista Dalton.
The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC) funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and based in the Bernal Institute at the University of Limerick (UL) has launched their Medicines In My Life initiative. The purpose of the initiative, which includes a website and resources for teachers and pupils, is to support the SSPC’s innovative educational programme for post-primary teachers and pupils, entitled ‘Innovation in Medicines’, a module designed to introduce students to the world of medicine.
The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) were announced winners for Excellence in Education and Training, at the recent HR Leadership & Management Awards. The HR Leadership & Management Awards celebrate excellence and emerging roles of HR as a strategic management device that aligns with organisational business objectives, will underpin both business proﬁtability and sustainability. The SSPC headquarters are in the Bernal Institute at the University of Limerick.
The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), in association with American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), Institute of Engineers of Ireland (IEI), International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Technology Centre (PMTC) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), recently hosted an international Continuous Manufacturing Workshop in Druids Glen, Co. Wicklow.
(bio)Pharma Ireland was formed in 2015 as an SSPC initiative to highlight the collective research priorities and industrial capabilities of the Irish (bio)Pharmaceutical sector within the European community; encourage research collaborations and opportunities; and ultimately contribute to the development of European policy.
The working group, coordinated and chaired by the SSPC, has representation from pharmaceutical industry: Biopharmachem Ireland (BPCI), government agencies: Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the IDA; and academic research organisations: the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) and the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Technology Centre (PMTC).
This is a funded 1-year position in the field of continuous wet granulation. The project involves application of Lattice Boltzmann method for modelling and simulation of continuous wet granulation via twin-screw extruder. A background in computer programming, process modelling and Lattice Boltzmann method would be desirable.
