Nanomanufacturing Formulations:
Extending Solubility for Rx Delivery

Forward this to a friend

This symposium occurred on December 11, 2014 but recordings are available to watch below. 

The above video contains 8 recordings in the following playlist:
1. Introductions and TEC Overview – Dawn Van Dam
2. Scalable Nanoscale Printing for Sensors and Advanced Materials – Ahmed Busnaina
3. Translational Nanomedicine – Mansoor Amiji
4. NEU Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Nanomedicine – Can Sarisozen
5. Novel Nanofabrication for Oral Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs – Cihan Yilmaz
6. Nanomedicine: Past, Present and Future – Ramin Darvari
7. Summary of the Day – Bret Johnson
8. NSF Grant Proposal – Cihan Yilmaz

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.

One Million Solutions in Health is a global movement working to stimulate ideas, innovation and solutions … by connecting people and sharing inspiring ideas … to transform the face of healthcare around the world.The movement started in 2011 when a group of passionate people gathered to discuss an important problem – we all have health systems that are broken … no country has enough resources, money or trained people to handle our future needs in healthcare delivery … and too many people are not living their lives to the fullest because they have poor health.Inspired by a mutual conviction that all people around the globe deserve better health, we have crafted a program that leverages collective knowledge, and the willingness to collaborate, for the purpose of finding solutions that improve healthcare delivery, improve the health status of individuals and communities, and provide unique ways to leverage the resources of the globe to implement health solutions.
