Lessons from a Farmer for Pharma: Targeted Delivery Solutions
Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN)
Nanotechnology has been deployed in agriculture for years in nanoclays, cyclodextrans and nanoemulsions. Yet, nanotechnology promises to play a much greater role in agriculture. Platform nano-enabled targeted delivery, controlled release, and transfection platforms are experiencing significant spikes in research, development and commercialization in the pharmaceutical space which also represent a significant opportunity for cross-fertilization of innovation in the agriculture industry.
Join us for an evening to discuss convergence and networking opportunities among these sectors.
This Nano&BioRoundtableTM will feature both agricultural technology and pharmaceutical companies, including Liquidia and Novozymes, who will present about their own delivery systems or about a need for an innovative solution to enhance their technologies. Our showcase companies will be available for one on one interaction during the networking reception.
