Ciprick will deliver a presentation on Thursday, May 23, 2024, at 10:50 a.m. EST. His session, titled "Manufacturing the Future of GMP Psychedelics: What Researchers, Clinicians, and Drug Developers Need to Know," promises to provide invaluable insights into the evolving landscape of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) psychedelic drugs.
