#ALT# NMR Spectroscopy in the Pharmaceutical Industry

To comply with FDA and MHRA regulations, pharmaceutical companies must have robust quality control measures in place. In this webinar, Dr. Kerry Hughes, Technical Leader at Almac, will provide an overview of good manufacturing practice (GMP) and explain how the company is using NMR spectroscopy to comply with the strict regulations that surround drug discovery and manufacturing.

Sign up now for this webinar, taking place on January 28th, 2020.

   Rejuvenating the BCG VaccineRejuvenating the BCG Vaccine
 
A new primate study published in the journal Nature in January 2020, reports that the almost century-old BCG vaccine against tuberculosis, may be used differently to achieve better protection against lung tuberculosis. While more work remains to be carried out before the findings can be accepted as the basis for clinical practice, they are extremely promising in the fight against this killer.
