Advancing Research to Therapies for Brain Tumors Conference Connects Academic Scientists to Industry Investors
Date:7/23/2013

BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

National Brain Tumor Society, the largest nonprofit in the United States dedicated to the brain tumor community, recently hosted the inaugural Advancing Research to Therapies (ART) for Brain Tumors Conference in Washington, D.C. The ART Conference brought together more than 100 leading experts from academic research labs, government agencies, biotech and pharmaceutical companies, and venture capital firms to increase communication and collaboration, as well as discuss licensing and investment criteria for new drug candidates to speed the discovery of new treatments for brain tumor patients.

“With very few exceptions, the different stakeholders involved in brain tumor drug development don’t discuss the barriers they face, their particular needs and wants, and thus what needs to, and can, happen to get new and better therapies to patients,” said N. Paul TonThat, Executive Director, National Brain Tumor Society. “This was an unique opportunity to get everyone in a room, get all the issues on the table, and plot a course forward.”

Sponsored by Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP and BioHealth Innovation, the Conference engaged attendees, as well as participants, in a discussion surrounding the issues and criteria for advancing discoveries from academic labs, through the commercialization process, and into the hands of clinicians and patients. Specifically, audience and panelists sought to better understand why more treatments for brain tumors aren’t available despite recent gains in research.

To address the issues effecting brain tumor therapeutic development, three panels of experts shared their distinct perspectives on the R&D process:

  • VC Panel: Venture capitalists shared their conditions for determining whether to invest in a company, academic asset, or drug candidate
  • BioPharma Panel: Biotech and pharmaceutical company execu
