Rockville, Md., September 3, 2008 The U.S. Pharmacopeial (USP) Convention's 2008 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) will be held in Kansas City, Mo., September 24 to 26. The meeting is an opportunity to interact with the USP experts responsible for establishing internationally recognized standards for prescription and over-the-counter medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements. The focus will be on Quality of Manufactured Medicines, Food Ingredients and Dietary Supplements.

The keynote speaker will be Kenneth D. Mandl, M.P.H., associate professor at Harvard Medical School and director of the Intelligent Health Laboratory at the Children's Hospital Informatics Program in Boston, Mass. Experts from USP, the Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, academic institutions, leading manufacturers, the United Nations and the World Bank will present information aimed at improving drug, supplement and food ingredient quality. More than 450 attendees are expected to make the trip to Kansas City this year to attend the cutting-edge sessions, provide feedback and network with colleagues.
