Jayesh Sonje, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota in Dr. Raj Suryanarayanan’s lab, received a travel grant for performing small angle neutron scattering experiments to understand protein aggregation in frozen systems. The outreach program encourages first-time users, provides them with essential educational opportunity to visit the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) facility in Maryland, and enables them to carry out experiments with the guidance of NIST scientific staff.
Professor Changquan “Calvin” Sun is being honored for his many contributions in the study of excipients and excipient-related technology. He joins previous CPPR Shangraw awardees, Professor Raj Suryanarayanan (University of Minnesota) and Professors Diane Burgess and Robin Bogner (University of Connecticut).
The National Institute for Pharmaceutical Technology and Education announced its 2019 awardees, including recently graduated CPPR Student, Dr. Shreya Kulkarni, from the Bogner Lab at University of Connecticut. Shreya was awarded for her dissertation research including findings from a CPPR project on reconstitution of high concentration lyophilized proteins. Dr. Kulkarni is now with Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Lots of folks stopped by our booth on September 17, 2019 to pick up a CPPR flash drive and learn more about the opportunities available with CPPR membership for their companies.
Jayesh Sonje, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota in Dr. Raj Suryanarayanan’s lab, was selected among 25 posters for the poster ‘Influence of excipients on physical form of mannitol in frozen and freeze-dried formulations’ at the poster session conducted at 2019 Preclinical Form and Formulation for Drug Discovery, Gordon Research Conference, New Hampshire.
