Title:                       “Novel peptide therapy candidates for medically unmet fungal and bacterial infections”

Date:                      August 20, 2021

Time:                      12:00 noon CET

Presenter:             Deborah O’Neil, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of NovaBiotics


We are delighted to be presenting our immune-based peptide approach to addressing the critical need for more effective and safer treatments for fungal and bacterial infections. The Peptide Therapeutics Forum will provide an interactive platform and exchange for various aspects of peptide drug development and I’m looking forward to being part of that,” stated Dr. O’Neil.


“NovaBiotics is developing proprietary compounds based on the body’s innate immune effector molecules to advance a truly revolutionary approach to combatting life-threatening and life-limiting diseases.  We believe these compounds, including our peptides, represent promising new classes of therapy with novel modalities and the potential to transform treatment paradigms in a number of poorly served diseases,” added Dr. O’Neil.
