The Drug Development Committee was created as an advisory committee, providing expertise and guidance to EpLink on early-stage development of potential drug compounds and the formation of start-up companies focused on developing these compounds. With advice and support from the Drug Development Committee, EpLink has successfully helped with the creation of a number of spin-off companies, including Ketogen Pharma Inc. and OB Pharmaceuticals that are now well established.
