MetrioPharm in Madrid, Spain
From June 12th till June 15th 2019, the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology took place in Madrid, Spain. MetrioPharm AG was represented by Dr. Astrid Kaiser, Head of Drug Development, and Dr. Petra Schulz, Senior Project Manager Drug Development. Schulz comments: “The EULAR Conference was a great opportunity for us to gain insight into the world of rheumatology. The presentations were of high quality, put together by health professionals and scientists, which were all focused on improving the well-being of people effected by RMD (rheumatic musculoskeletal diseases). We were able to receive valid updates on what is new in the field of rheumatoid arthritis and we identified new possible positionings for MP1032 in other rheumatic musculoskeletal diseases. There is an unmet medical need of new innovative drugs where MP1032 with its unique MoA could show promising effects. It was a great pleasure to participate.”
