CHI's Biologics Formulation and Delivery Summit - Overview


Advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have allowed for the large-scale production of effective and potent biotherapeutic drugs.  Major research issues in protein/peptide delivery include the stabilization of proteins in delivery devices and the design of appropriate target-specific carriers. CHI’s Inaugural Biologics Formulation and Delivery Summit will provide a forum for focused discussions on current challenges and opportunities in delivery of biotherapeutics. This multi-track summit will discuss various formulation and device-based approaches for designing physiologically relevant, patient friendly, targeted biologics products.
