IPEC-Americas and the West Coast Chapter of the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) is offering a 1- day Excipient workshop that will be held at the Genentech facility located in South San Francisco.

This co-Sponsored Excipient Workshop is intended to provide education specifically related to current issues pertaining to excipients for the respective members and regulators; however, non-members are encouraged to attend as well.
