Thank you for the symposium!

The 32nd symposium of the Finnish Society of Physical Pharmacy was organized online on March 25th 2021. The theme was Solubility and stability challenges in drug development.

We had intriguing lectures, posters and discussions from participants from all around the world! We thank everyone for participation and for making the symposium possible.

We hope to see you next year!
