SmartTab to Present Significant Progress at Startup Health Festival in January 2020
By Sacha Heppell - December 18, 2019
The SmartTab team is pleased to announce they will be attending the Startup Health Festival 2020 in San Francisco to present significant progress on the Wireless Ingestible Capsule.
The SmartTab presents a unique opportunity in history to transform drug delivery for people to lead better lives. SmartTab has been a regular at the festival since their first attendance four years ago and they have come a long way since. What started out as an idea is now becoming a reality.
“What once could be seen as impossible is now one step closer to becoming a reality.”
-Polina Hanin, Executive Director of Startup Health
StartUp Health Festival is a festival that gathers CEOs, investors, world leaders and entrepreneurs focused on solving the world’s biggest health challenges. This invite-only experience, takes place alongside the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference and rallies a global army of Health Transformers who are reimagining the future of health. Attendees leave with actionable insights, powerful connections and a new mindset on collaboration.
The progress this year comes with the completion of successful pre-clinical animal studies which demonstrated the ability of a proprietary radio-controlled immediate release SmartTab Capsule delivery system to deliver the test article to a targeted area of the gastrointestinal tract and compare plasma pharmacokinetics to that observed after oral delivery of caffeine in Yorkshire-Cross farm swine.
There’s no better way to kick off the year than attending Startup Health Festival. It’s a great way for us to share our progress and the next big things to come!
-SmartTab Founder/CEO Robert Niichel
