Northeastern University partnered with One Million Solutions in Health to host a multi-disciplinary event this past December. The session featured presentations from several prominent industry, academic and government organizations, along with an in-depth discussion on next steps and the projects we can work on together to better extend solubility for Rx delivery.
Speakers addressed enabling nanotechnology in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries to allow non-soluble compounds to become soluble, a topic recently addressed by Northeastern University in a 2015 Wired article.
Additionally, the group heard from and identified how these initiatives with nanomanufacturing technologies will impact the Massachusetts economy. Speakers discussed specific use cases of nanomanufacturing technlogies in the life sciences and discussed plans to move forward with a number of projects in this area.
One Million Solutions in Health is also offering an opportunity to biopharmaceutical companies or other drug discovery research centers to further evaluate and validate this technology. Even if you could not attend this live event, we encourage organizations to participate in this program by joining the Technology Evaluation ConsortiumTM (TEC) which brings together biopharmaceutical companies, other researchers, and technology providers to accelerate the drug discovery and development process.
