Sushi Seminar & Networking Event

April 11, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

American Association Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) & Graduate Business and Consulting Club (GBCC) Present Sushi Seminar & Networking Event with Dr. John Padieri, SymbicBio co-founder & SR Dir of Research


At Symbic Bio, Dr. Paderi has led development of two drug candidates from concept to clinical trials (MODIFY-OA and SHIELD). He has conducted Scientific Advisory Board meetings, fostered relationships with key opinion leaders, managed intellectual property for the company and suggested regulatory strategy and his pharmacology expertise in meetings with the FDA. Before his position at Symic Bio, Dr. Paderi was the Biodesign Innovation Fellow and Co-Founder of Cala Health at Stanford University. He completed his PhD in Bioengineering at Arizona State University and post-doctoral fellowship at Purdue University and Glytrix Inc in West Lafayette, IN.

We will be co-hosting Dr. Paderi for a two-part event in collaboration with the UNC Graduate Business and Consulting Club (GBCC). This event will mirror the structure of our March AAPS event from last year, in which Captain E. Dennis Bashaw from the FDA visited the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
