PureForm’s BioSciences Division develops medical applications and novel, patentable drug delivery mechanisms for the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids.
We live in the age of discovery. We've mapped the human genome and reached Mars, and yet we haven't solved some of the most universal problems of the human condition.
Our research promises to change the lives of tens of millions, of not only patients, but their children, parents and families who suffer in kind.
We embrace the unknown, the difficult journey, as that is where real discovery happens, when everything is fluid and agile.
In the modern world, science and medicine advances by leaps and bounds, with tremendous potential for growth and discovery. However, nature remains the ultimate chemist. From plants to microorganisms, nearly half of currently available pharmaceuticals were originally derived from natural sources. Medicine has long taken inspiration from the natural world - aspirin was derived from white willow bark, morphine from poppies, Coumadin from clover, and the rosy periwinkle led to vinblastine, which has made previously deadly Hodgkin’s lymphoma both treatable and curable. That same plant produced vincristine, which is used to treat childhood leukemia, while microbes are the key to a wide range of antibiotics and statins.
