GGPF ALZApalooza


GGPF announces a very different kind of dinner event for September... 
"GGPF ALZApalooza"

Eight short presentations on Alza-related polymer, chemistry, or drug delivery technologies. As befits a special event of this type and to assist our colleages who are leaving ALZA this October, we will be starting slighly early to allow a bit longer time for the presentations.  Please read the details below and plan on attending for a great networking opportunity as well as a fast-paced overview of various drug delivery technologies and related issues.
