With an increasing diversity of compounds addressing more drug targets, the available range and sophistication of Drug Delivery Technologies has expanded with the goal of increasing the successful rate of new chemical entities. New classes of pharmaceuticals and biologics (peptides, proteins and DNA-based therapeutics) are fueling the rapid evolution of drug delivery technology. These new drugs typically cannot be effectively delivered by conventional means. Additionally, it has been determined that, for many conventional pharmaceutical therapies, the efficacy may be improved and the side effects reduced if the therapy is administered continuously, rather than through conventional burst release techniques. The benefits from targeted, localized delivery of certain therapeutic agents are another driving force which emphasizes the need of exploring innovative drug delivery technologies.

Gujarat Technological University has taken an initiative to organize this conference in order to take a step ahead to gather all researchers working in the field of drug delivery technologies to share their expertise and views in this area. Baroda College of Pharmacy and Parul Institute of Pharmacy are engaged in similar research activities concentrating on delivering the improved pharmaceuticals in all respects, generated by using latest technologies for effective and targeted drug delivery. The colleges are also working in collaboration with many pharmaceutical industries in the state to foster the need of industry-academic interaction for such developments. Organization of this conference in collaboration with Gujarat technological University is done to encourage research activities and to get updated and enriched with the advanced knowledge shared during the conference.

The speakers invited for the conference are renowned personalities from academia and pharmaceutical industries who are actively involved in the development and implementation of latest technologies in efficient delivery of drugs for treatment of several diseases. This conference will also provide a platform for young researchers to exhibit their contributions for development of new drug delivery techniques and will give them a chance to interact with the eminent and expert personalities in this field.

As a convener of this conference I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all eminent speakers who have agreed to deliver their talks during this conference and enrich all of us with their expertise. I would also like to appreciate the overwhelming response of the budding pharmacists for presentations in this conference. The conference has truly become a national event with representatives from different states of India. I would also like to thank the officials of Gujarat Technological University for without their support, this conference could not have taken place.

I wish the conference to be truly fruitful to everyone involved and look forward to receive valuable suggestions which should help us to pursue such initiatives in various areas of Pharmaceutical research.
