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

tives shared their criteria for determining whether to license and develop an academic asset or drug candidate
  • Federal Government Resources Panel: Employees from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute for Neurological Disease and Stroke outlined resources available for brain tumor researchers, in terms of both funding and advice, to translate discoveries into therapies
  • The panels discussed issues ranging from creating data packages big enough to show translatability and reproducibility (close to 70% of research fails to reproduce outside the original academic lab), to de-risking and simplifying the market for brain tumor drug development. Panelists also offered candid advice for researchers.

    "If you're an academic looking to potentially take a program or an asset from your lab and trying to spin it out into a company, it's important as you begin to look at possible investors that you understand what their investment strategy is," said Michael Gutch, PhD, MD, and Managing Director of MedImmune Ventures.

    "We invest in people we like to invest with,” added Neil Exter, Partner, Third Rock Ventures. “It's good to develop relationships with your friendly VCs in the nearer term, or over time."

    Following the advice and subsequent discussions from Industry and government’s perspective, National Brain Tumor Society-funded academic researchers showcased their latest drug candidates in hopes of obtaining funding to move their asset toward clinical trials. Out of the four drug candidates presented, two of the corresponding researchers have already been in deeper discussions with Industry representatives that were on hand to seek licensing and development partnerships.

    Nearly 700,000 people in the U.S. are living with a brain tumor, and close to 14,000 people will die because of the disease this year alone. Only one out of three adults diagnosed with a malignant brain tu
