A Registered NGO, Society for Pharmaceutical Dissolution Science (SPDS) was formed on 16th July 2012 in Mumbai with the objective of promoting Science and Technological Development in the field of Dissolution Science among pharmaceutical professionals, Academia, Students, Regulatory Bodies, etc. SPDS is the only professional body dedicated to Dissolution and its application worldwide. SPDS envisions to be one of the most prominent organizations focusing on Dissolution Science among the Pharmaceutical Industry and Academia.
SPDS is proud to have partnered with the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) for this year’s Disso India 2021 event. Founded in 1986, the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) is a professional, scientific organization of approximately 7,000 individual members and over 10,000 actively participating stakeholders employed in academia, industry, government, and other pharmaceutical science-related research institutes worldwide. The mission of AAPS is to “Advance the capacity of pharmaceutical scientists to develop products and therapies that improve global health”. It works on five core values – Learning, Innovation, Service, Inclusiveness, and Integrity.
While talking with Dr. Prakash Bhosale a media representative with SPDS General secretory & MD of SOTAX India Dr. L. Ramaswamy appealed to Pharmaceutical Industry & Healthcare Academia in India & Abroad to join this online conference & make it a success and enhance the quality of drugs produced by Pharma Companies.
