Activity Description

The Science Club of Pharmaceutical Technology is aimed at students interested in expanding their knowledge in various aspects of pharmaceutical technology. The club’s work is practical in nature and focuses mainly on research related to solid drug forms.

Club meetings are held in thematic groups according to an individual schedule determined by the current research plan. In the academic year 2022/2023, the club’s work focuses on two issues: the development of modified-release minitablets and the evaluation of the influence of parameters of hot-melt extrusion process on the properties of extruded filaments intended for 3D printing of solid drug forms.

The club is addressed to students in the third to fifth year of pharmacy studies, and classes are conducted in Polish.

Oral presentations are regularly prepared and delivered during the International Student Conferences of Scientific Societies of Medical Universities, held annually in Krakow. Interested students also participate in other national conferences and in the preparation of scientific articles. The list of conference reports by participants of the Pharmaceutical Technology Club is presented below.
