Our conversation dives right in to the state of women’s health research and the innovative methods of intra-uterine delivery that OCON is developing that can treat a range of conditions in a non-invasive and efficient way. We speak about the challenge of attracting funding, particularly at this juncture given OCON’s location and the perseverance and advocacy that has to continue throughout this process. We describe the treatments and therapies in detail and ask what some of the barriers are to attracting more attention for women’s health.
