NIDA’s Intramural Research Program hosted a Neural Engineering Symposium on Apr. 7.

Faculty from Purdue University’s biomedical engineering department presented innovative technologies for drug delivery systems, formulations and counterfeit prevention strategies to help curb the opioid overdose epidemic.

In addition, Purdue faculty presented experimental diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices, both wearable and implantable.

NIDA investigators and Purdue faculty spent the day discussing the research tool and clinical applications for these early-stage technologies.

The symposium is a continuation of ongoing research collaborations between the NIDA IRP and Purdue University and will lead to further development of these technologies for diagnostic and therapeutic utility.
