Don’t mess with Michigan

Attorney general of Michigan, Dana Nessel, is suing 17 of the nation’s biggest chemical manufacturers for $3 million over the production and “intentional hiding” of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which have been linked to diseases, including cancer. Companies have been told to cease PFAS sales and offer compensation for any subsequent investigation, monitoring or removal required.

Driving drug discovery forward

ZebiAI Therapeutics and X-Chem have entered a strategic agreement to enable the validation of therapeutic targets and accelerate drug candidate discovery.
