Welcome Greeting

Welcome Greeting

It is my great pleasure to hold the international conference on advanced
pharmaceutical technology, specially focusing on Drug printing and Drug
delivery Technology in Toyama Japan.

As everyone knows, 3D printing has emerged and boomed world-widely in
these 5 to 6 years. A one of the applications, 3D printed drug was
approved by FDA in USA. And a Washington Post column reporter wrote
three ways in which 3D printers will save human’s life one day. He
introduced 3D printed drug designed and manufactured according to each
patients, as one of the reasonable human centered medicine.
We hope the attendees in this conference can experience such potentials
in drug printing technologies.
The second major theme of this conference is drug delivery technology.
Drug delivery system(DDS) is the technology to deliver drugs to the
targeted regions at the targeted time and reasonable amount, however,
recently, high molecular drugs have become the center of medicines
instead of low molecular chemicals. In such high molecular drugs,
conventional techniques for DDS are no more effective. In this
conference, some innovative drug administration approaches including
trans-dermal therapies are focused on.
We hope the attendees can notice some clues for some destructive
innovations in drug delivery technologies for coming decade.
And the final goal of this conference is to contribute to realization of
future human-centered medicine.
Come and enjoy the world of next generation drug manufacturing &
pharmaceutical technologies, .

Best regards,

Chair of the Drug printing & Drug delivery technology 2019 in Toyama,
