On behalf of the East coast chapter of the International Society for Lyophilization and Freeze-Drying (ISL-FD Inc.), I would like to cordially invite you to attend our 2019 chapter meeting in the Greater Washington, D.C. Area on September 17th 2019. This will be a day-long event filled with presentations given by some of the leading academic and industry researchers in lyophilization science. In addition to the technical presentations, there will be a poster session, vendor exhibits, and plenty of time allotted during breaks and lunch for networking opportunities, see attached agenda.
The meeting will be held at AstraZeneca 1 MedImmune Way, Gaithersburg, MD. Doors will open at 7:30 am for registration and breakfast, with introductions and sessions beginning promptly at 8:45 am. The attendance fee is $99 (excluding Pay Pal processing fee), which will include breakfast, lunch, and morning & afternoon breaks with refreshments. We are a non- profit organization, and so there is no better value anywhere!

Rooms are discounted and the number of rooms is limited, so make your reservations by calling 1-800-321 2211 and reference the ISLFD Room Block September2019 or online via the link below.
