PBA History

The spirit of this symposium series is to attract researchers from all over the world, involved in all areas of the drug analysis starting from the discovery phase (hit identification, structure properties relationship), through drug development (lead optimisation, ADMET studies, biomarkers identification) ending with formulation quality control and validation.
