Five leading researchers discussed new concepts in drug discovery, engineering, and delivery on the final day of the Annual Meeting. Evan A. Scott, PhD, reviewed the use of targeted nanocarriers for cell-selective cancer therapy.
Three experts discussed the evolution of phase I trials during an Annual Meeting symposium on Tuesday, April 18. “We must recognize that forward- and reverse-translation are complementary and phase I is the place to do it.
