The Biological Technologies Office is holding a Proposers Day to provide information on the structure and objectives of the Panacea program. Panacea aims to integrate systems pharmacology and advanced medicinal chemistry approaches to expand the human drug target space for therapeutic interventions in the areas of acute management of pain and inflammation and the improvement of physiological endurance under oxygen-limited conditions or environments. Panacea will support the development and proof-of-concept demonstration of a new integrated platform for the rapid prediction, synthesis, and validation of pharmacological interventions.
