Our scientists have made important advances on both the Medusa and Micropump technology platforms. The diversified pipeline of projects we are pursuing is advancing strongly and we are well-positioned to leverage the advantages that both platforms bring to our partners with respect to safety and efficacy, as well as greater convenience for patients and their caregivers.
