Singapore research organisations team up to advance drug discovery using brain tumor stem cells
Date:2/17/2009

ties for exchanging ideas and synergising efforts, more effective and less invasive cancer treatment is now one step closer to becoming a reality.

Dr. Jonathon D. Sedgwick, LSCDD Managing Director and Chief Scientific Officer, said that "discovering new, breakthrough medicines through translational and clinical research requires intensive collaborations amongst partners. This research collaboration with clinicians and scientists from NNI and SICS will bring together different expertise and resources. This fits well with Lilly's new collaborative model known as the Fully Integrated Pharmaceutical Network (FIPNet) model, and will enhance and accelerate Lilly's ability to find 'Answers That Matter'."

Dr. Judith Swain, SICS Executive Director, said that "this collaboration is aligned with our focus on disease-oriented clinical and translational research. The family of clinician scientists here at SICS is well positioned to perform critical work at the border between basic and clinical research. We look forward to working closely with LSCDD and NNI to develop cutting-edge approaches for novel drug development."

"NNI's research aims to improve treatment and discover cures for neurological disease. This collaboration will enable all parties to benefit from the exchange of multidisciplinary expertise and will expedite the translation of research findings into clinical practice," said Prof. Lee Wei Ling, Executive Director of NNI.
