The Forge 2021

Virtual Conference Success!

Held on 25 March, The FORGE provided a platform for Ph.D. students and early career scientists to share research. Focusing on particle characterization for pharmaceutical formulations, we asked speakers to share their research and give us an insight into what inspires them. 

Hosted online, we were joined by 24 speakers, 14 poster presenters, and over 200 attendees from 19 countries for a great day, packed full of interesting content. 

Hours of content 
Attendees had access to over eight hours of content. This included: three live streams, 23 pre-recorded talks and 14 posters with video elevator pitches. By the end of the day, a whopping 250 hours of content had been consumed.

Of course, the stars of the show were the Ph.D  students and early career scientists who shared their research. The standard of presentation from all participants was incredibly high. To help choose the winners, we enlisted an expert judging panel to assess both the presentations and elevator pitches. Given the amount of content, this required a big commitment from our judging panel. We are very grateful to them for their time in helping pick our winners. 

Congratulations goes to

  • BEST TALK: Reabeatswe Zwane – Structure-Mechanical Response Relationships of Pharmaceutical Solid Forms from First-Principles
  • BEST POSTER: Merel Bout – Solid interaction study on the mechanism between an active ingredient and an excipient
