Webinar: Developing Cures with Less Time & Capital
The Myelin Repair Foundation, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Scott Cook & Signe Ostby Foundation are offering an interactive Webinar to discuss a new drug development model with the potential to cut years from the drug development timeline, saving lives and money.
The webinar will focus on Myelin Repair Foundation’s new holistic approach to multiple sclerosis drug development that bridges the gap between the promising discoveries made in academic laboratories and big-pharmaceutical drug research and development. The approach shows early promise in cutting development costs and shaving years off of the time it takes to move a drug from basic science to patient therapy. The session will include an interactive Q&A portion where participants can direct questions to participating panelists.
