Mini-Symposium: Biologics – Bridging the gap


Evaluation

Evaluation: DDD 2019
Sending

The 2018 years Nobel prizes in Medicine (immuno oncology) manifested the power of biological drugs for treating life-threatening diseases, and the Nobel prize in Chemistry (phage-display) rewarded a technology that efficiently identifies potential biological drug candidates. Problem solved!? Not really! Much work remains in order to successfully move biological drug candidates to clinical trials. This one-day, free, workshop co-organized by the SciLifeLab Drug Discovery platform and GE Healthcare/Testa center will highlight some of the many activities that need to be in place to “Bridge the gap”.

Welcome!
