ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Enzychem Lifesciences (KOSDAQ: 183490), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative medicines to improve the lives of patients with cancer and inflammatory diseases, today announced that an Enzychem Lifesciences representative will be participating as a panelist at the 15th New York Health Forum, which will be held virtually on Tuesday, March 16.
The New York Health Forum brings together industry experts from the life sciences, research, investment community, healthcare policy, and other providers, to advance the development of healthcare innovation.
This 15th forum is designed to hear insights from leaders who lead the way to accelerate progress against space radiation and other space related health threats, the area which are important but not frequently discussed in the arena of space exploration.
Dr. Ji Sun Park, a Senior Scientist at Enzychem Lifesciences will participate in a panel discussing the risks associated with deep space missions and efforts to mitigate and protect astronaut’s health.
