Nucryst Pharmaceuticals - Dermatology Update Sponsor

NUCRYST Pharmaceuticals Corp’s start came from the desire to improve and broaden silver’s therapeutic properties. Using their understanding of quantum mechanics, NUCRYST scientists started thinking small: nano small approaching the quantum/atomic scale. Small variations in structure and composition of nanoscale materials can have a dramatic effect on physical, chemical, biological properties of materials.

NUCRYST identifies noble metals with known therapeutic qualities and uses its platform nanocrystalline technology to create drugs, medical devices, or medical coatings with potentially enhanced therapeutic qualities.
