Mission

​The Society for Pharmaceutical Dissolution Science was originally formed on July 16, 2012 in Mumbai, India. Gradually growing over the years, SPDS decided in 2018 to expand internationally to the USA. The US Chapter coordinates with the Indian parent society while operating as a wholly independent not-for-profit organization incorporated in the USA. Membership in any chapter of SPDS grants members reciprocal membership benefits in all chapters. Member benefits include discounts to any and all SPDS conferences and workshops. SPDS aspires to be the most prominent professional society focused solely on pharmaceutical dissolution science. Our mission is to support progress in and disseminate information pertaining to the on-going advancement of pharmaceutical dissolution science across industry and academia worldwide.
