Business of drug development on verge of great change
Date:4/1/2008

oratory of drug discovery at the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center and one of several co-presenters at the SBS meeting, also came from industry and has high hopes for the increased collaboration between Big Pharma and academia in drug discovery. At Harvard, our mission is to develop new therapeutics for diseases with no disease modifying treatments such as Parkinsons and Alzheimers, or orphan diseases such as Huntingtons and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrigs), she states. There are smaller numbers of patients affected by orphan diseases -- treatments for them are not considered billion dollar drugs, so they are much harder to develop in industry.

Like Dr. Austin, Dr. Glicksman says its simply too expensive for industry to conduct this early stage research, and that is why the academic centers are so vital to the future of drug discovery for diseases that industry cant address on its own.

Dr. Austin and Dr. Glicksman will speak at a session on this topic at the 14th Annual Conference & Exhibition of the Society for Biomolecular Sciences (SBS) April 6-10 at Americas Center in St. Louis.
