Proteins and peptides represent a significant segment of the therapeutics spectrum with many promising candidates under early development or in late-stage clinical trials. Several of these molecules are poised to make a substantial impact, especially in the under-represented or unrepresented categories such as neurological disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. A key challenge to be overcome with protein and peptide based biologics, however, is their effective delivery to the target site while achieving the optimum balance of stability, safety, bioavailability, and patient compliance. This short course will provide a broad overview of the opportunities and challenges in the development of the next generation of protein and peptide therapeutic delivery systems.
