The drug delivery field is emerging as a key sector in driving innovation to bring new therapies to market and increase profitability. On May 6-7, 2014 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA, Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI) will hold its Inaugural New Technologies for Biologics Delivery and Targeting conference.

This conference will cover novel delivery approaches and their roles in developing and delivering biologics, designing targeted delivery approaches and improving efficacy and safety. These strategies are directed to the development of patient-centric therapies. The keynote speaker will be Omid Farokhzad, M.D., Associate Professor, Laboratory of Nanomedicine and Biomaterials, Department of Anesthesiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Farokhzad will discuss targeted polymeric nanoparticles: from discovery to clinical trials.

Polymeric nanoparticles can deliver drugs in the optimum dosage over time, thus increasing the efficacy of the drug, maximizing patient compliance and enhancing the ability to use highly toxic, poorly soluble, or relatively unstable drugs. The successful clinical translation of therapeutic nanoparticles requires optimization of many distinct parameters resulting in a large number of potential variables for optimization which is impractical to achieve using a low-throughput approach. The goal of Dr. Farokhzad’s talk is to review his lab’s efforts in the design and optimization of polymeric nanoparticles for medical applications, which formed the foundation for the clinical translation of the first-in-human targeted and controlled-release nanoparticles, BIND-014 and SEL-068.

Additional speakers include:

- Mansoor M. Amiji, Ph.D., Northeastern University
- Ajay K. Banga, Ph.D., Mercer University
- Scott Banta, Ph.D., Columbia University
- Ashutosh Chilkoti, Ph.D., Duke University
- Donald Cropek, Ph.D., U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
- Ramin Darvari, Ph.D., Pfizer, Inc.
- Drew Elias, Ph.D., Johnson & Johnson
- Per-Ola Freskgard, Ph.D., Roche
- Marian Gindy, Ph.D., Merck Research Laboratories
- Pankaj Karande, Ph.D., Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- Andrea Leone-Bay, Ph.D., MannKind Corp.
- Ashim K. Mitra, Ph.D., University of Missouri-Kansas City
- Hayat Onyuksel, Ph.D., University of Illinois
- Dushyant Varshney, Ph. D., Novartis
