Nanotechnology: the next silver bullet?

Abstract:
Although predicted by many to be the future of biotech and pharma R&D, investment in nanotechnology has been unexpectedly low so far, with few companies willing to take that financial risk. A focus group has been established in the UK with major industry stakeholders to assess how companies can take on the risk of an unproven technology in a highly regulated industry. The author believes, however, that the successful early adopters of nanotech will reap the rewards.

Nanotech has much to offer the pharma industry; if it follows previous technology examples, such as biotech, the successful early adopters will reap the rewards. However, there are still a number of hurdles to overcome, such as a clear regulatory pathway and a demonstration of value above and beyond current technologies, before it can become mainstream. There are significant efforts by industry and governments to help nanotech to jump the technology adoption gap quickly and ensure it can assist in developing the next generation of products, which are needed to solve significant unmet medical needs faced by patients and healthcare professionals.
