"From Curiosity to (Pre-)commercialization:
Challenges in the Development of a Niemann-Pick Type C Therapeutic"

The Thompson Lab has had a long-standing interest in the development of pH-, light-, and enzyme-activated materials for drug delivery. An accidental encounter led to a major detour from that effort and the impetus for our current focus on the development of a safe and effective agent for the treatment of the rare lysosomal disorder, Niemann-Pick Type C. This story and our related efforts in developing continuous synthesis methods for the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients and the use of drug leads for protein structure elucidation will be discussed.
Date / Time: 
Monday, November 20, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
