Nanopharm Announce Appointment of Head of Device Development

NEWPORT, UK, December 7th, 2016 — Nanopharm Ltd (“Nanopharm”), a leading provider of tailored analytical and drug development services, with a focus on orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDPs), today announced the appointment of Arron Danson as Head of Device Development.

Arron has over 20 years of experience in the field of medical product development with a specific interest in pulmonary and nasal delivery devices. A qualified engineer he brings highly complementary skills to Nanopharm and enables the company to offer an integrated offering to partners. Nanopharm can now offer a suite of tailored services from early development of the active compound through clinical submissions, device design and prototyping and regulatory approval of both the drug and the device. Arron has experience in bringing a range of devices to market and this together with his rigour and discipline will make a significant contribution to the team.

Prof. Rob Price said “Arron’s appointment enables Nanopharm to provide an integrated approach to orally inhaled and nasal drug product development. Hitherto, device development and formulation optimisation are not typically integrated during the development cycle, which adds significant risk to OINDP programs. The combination of Nanopharm’s core strengths in material science, formulation development and device development, will de-risk and expedite product development programs of our growing client base.”

Dr Jag Shur said “Arron’s broader skills in project management will also provide us with industry leading standards and protocols as we continue to build our fee for service and co-development business. By combining device and formulation capabilities, Nanopharm aims to become the leading provider of integrated drug delivery solutions for OINDPs.”
