Not Your Grandparents' Drugs: How Drugs Changed Since the 70's.. and What to Do About It

Presented by Dennis Hu, Ph.D., CEO & Editor-in-Chief, Drug Hunter; Christian Jones, FRSC, Chief Commercial Officer, Nanoform; & Chris Worrall, VP US Business Development, Nanoform

May 10, 2023, 10 AM PT // 1 PM ET

We can all sense that the drugs of today are quite different from the drugs of decades past. "Small molecules" don't seem so small anymore, and evolving drug properties seem to be creating more and more challenges for drug discovery, formulation, and development.

Join Drug Hunter and Nanoform for this Flash Talk, where we take a look at how the chemical structures of drugs have changed over the years, what seems to be driving the changes in drug properties over time, and discuss how emerging technologies like nanoparticle formulation can help address increasingly common issues.

Thanks to Nanoform for their support of this webinar.
