Established in 1978 as a non-profit organization, the Controlled Release Society (CRS) is one of the most respected societies fostering the progress in bioengineering, drug delivery, materials science and pharmaceutics, among other areas.

The CRS Annual Meeting & Exposition is the highlight of the year for those who are “committed to making a positive difference in creating the future of delivery science and technology”, as stated by the immediate past-president Maria José Alonso.

After the meeting, the society challenged its members to capture all exciting ideas of the event in one A4 page for the CRS Mind Mapping Championship 2019. João Pedro Martins, PhD Student at the Faculty of Pharmacy under the supervision of Prof. Hélder A. Santos, was one of the winners of the competition, with the mind map below.
