The PODD team brings to the West Coast a Drug Delivery Design & Partnering Meeting

This inaugural program focuses on meeting the design needs of drug delivery systems from the perspectives of pharma, physicians, patients, investors, as well as KOLs in personalized medicine and digital.

There is an emphasis on how to reduce risk and advance drug delivery technologies for current and future needs. More specifically, we aim to cover the following:

  • Where is the sector going?
  • What are the key principles to reduce failures?
  • What are the unknown, unknowns?
  • How do we design for success and what are the guiding principles?
