Date:11/6/2013

NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) announced yesterday the launch of its newly expanded ADDF ACCESS program to provide scientists in academia and small biotechnology companies with access to a virtual network of drug discovery experts and contract research organizations (CROs) that have experience developing therapies for neurodegenerative diseases. Through the effective selection of CROs and use of their services, researchers may be able to accelerate their research and bring novel therapies to patients faster.

"The ADDF is excited to expand the availability of this valuable resource for the scientific community," said Howard Fillit, MD, executive director and chief science officer of the ADDF. "Our mission at the ADDF is to accelerate the discovery and development of new Alzheimer's drugs. Drug discovery is a true interdisciplinary effort and ADDF ACCESS seeks to connect scientists with the diverse range of resources and services they need to expedite their research."

ADDF ACCESS now gives academic and small biotechnology research communities access to a network of more than 130 CROs and the services they provide. The expanded and redesigned portal allows users to customize their search for CROs and access a virtual network of drug discovery experts who can provide guidance on CRO selection and research design.

To make this resource available to the broader community and promote collaboration between scientists working on different neurodegenerative diseases, the ADDF is building a consortium of nonprofit partners.
