For our 7th International Conference, Dr. Enric Jo and his Organizing Committee (in particular Anna Flo!) did a fantastic job at leading us to a very successful ISL-FD 2015 Conference and Seminar.  The event was held in Barcelona on 6-10 July 2015 at the Barcelona College of Pharmacy.

In addition to the conference speakers and courses, we toured Reig Jofre and Telstar facilities.  Thank you for hosting these companies for taking us in!

Enric and Anna also arranged a wonderful Gala Dinner that included Flamenco dancers and musicians.

Freeze Drying Course:

Dr. Kevin Murgatroyd, Pharmaceutical Consultant hosted our Freeze Drying Course. Dr. Murgatroyd has been in pharmaceuticals since 1981. He gave a course at the 2013 ISL-FD Sao Paulo event. He is a very dynamic speaker who ensured that the audience received the maximum benefit of his experience. We were very lucky to have Dr. Murgatroyd at Barcelona!
