New Research, Consumer Products Conference Highlight

Can we mimic cancer cells, thereby killing the cancer? Will scientists engineer molecular life in a test tube without cloning more old Dolly's? Drug delivery scientists report on these advances at the 26th International Symposium on Controlled Release of Bioactive Materials in Boston, MA, June 20-25, 1999. "This year's International Symposium on Controlled Release offers many outstanding speakers and reports of innovative clinical and basic research. We will hear interesting reports from our Second Consumer and Diversified Products Conference," said Vladimir Torchilin, PhD, DSc, professor/chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Northeastern University. Dr. Torchilin co-chairs the program with Francesco M. Veronese, PhD, professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Italy's University of Padova. Innovations in research at this year's International Symposium feature drug targeting in cancer and cardiovascular disease, novel intracytoplasmic drug delivery, controlled delivery in diagnostics, and drug delivery and biotechnology in the new millennium. The Second Consumer and Diversified Products Conference focuses on functional foods for diabetes, controlled release of flavor, aroma agents, and pesticide applications, said program chair Mary Marshall, P.E., of Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, TX. "Our Boston Symposium has all the hallmarks of a scientifically exciting conference. This meeting is setting new records, highlighting scientific growth in our Society, expanding the scope of CRS into gene therapy, biotechnology, and consumer products," said Thomas Kissel, PhD, of Philipps- University of Marburg, Germany, and current president of the Controlled Release Society. The Controlled Release Society is a international organization representing a spectrum of scientific fields. Marketed controlled release products today include nicotine patches to stop smoking, depot hormone formulations, tablets that bypass the stomach to dissolve later. Headquartered in Deerfield, IL, USA, with a European office in Geneva, Switzerland, the Controlled Release Society serves over 2,400 members from 43 countries. ots Original Text Service: Controlled Release Society Internet: Contact: Europe, Daphne Romy, PhD, of Controlled Release Society, in Geneva, Switzerland, (+41) 79 413 5684; or United States, Mary Jean Pramik, MS, in San Francisco (USA) 415-456-6766, for the Controlled Release Society
