A new year is often reason to reflect on what has occurred and to consider what the future may hold. And for 2012, Pharmaceutical Technology is doing just that. Next year will mark Pharmaceutical Technology’s 35th anniversary, and as part of a special issue to be published in July 2012, we are seeking to gain your input on what you feel have been the most noteworthy achievements in the pharmaceutical sciences and manufacturing and what future developments may shape the industry.
Beginning this month, we are featuring monthly reader polls to gain your feedback on key advances in the pharmaceutical sciences and manufacturing. As the scientists and technical experts on the front lines, your input is a crucial component in understanding what the industry has achieved and where it will go in the future. We encourage you to provide your feedback in our first poll, which is examining advances in oral drug delivery and oral product forms. We will share the results with you at PharmTech.com, and along with further analysis, our July issue will take a retrospective and prospective look at drug substance and finished drug-product manufacturing, formulation development and drug delivery, outsourcing, and analytical testing.
We are interested in your feedback as well. In addition to our reader polls, we invite you to provide your input on what you think have been major achievements in drug substance and finished drug-product manufacturing, formulation development and drug delivery, outsourcing, and analytical testing. Lend your expertise and offer your input in the comment section to this blog or email your input to Patricia Van Arnum, executive editor, firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
