HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Medical countermeasures are critical for chemical and biologic defense. Our understanding of the challenges of developing therapeutic supply, formulation, and delivery for the target product profile helps us to develop effective countermeasures for nerve agents, chlorine, cyanide and hydrogen sulfide, radiation, viral, and bacterial threats. We have worked closely with both private industry and government.
