Event Overview
Welcome message:

This didactic conference will educate scientists on the processes of translating basic research into novel therapies and will leave participants with a strong knowledge base and relevant resources to address the associated barriers and challenges in developing a drug.

The programs will also highlight case studies of small molecule and biologics programs at different stages of development aimed at tackling challenging CNS targets relevant to neurodegenerative diseases.

This conference will provide participants with fundamental knowledge and resources on developing new drugs to treat and prevent neurodegenerative diseases, and will address the challenges associated with the following sub-topics:

(1) Embarking on a Drug Discovery Campaign;

(2) Starting at the End: The Pharmacology-Chemistry Interface in Preclinical Drug Development;

(3) Drug Discovery: From Lead to Clinical Candidate;

(4) Strategies for CNS Targets: Case Study Examples; and

(5) Commercialization Strategies: Developing Science into Products.

Discussions will include relevant examples focused on small molecule and biologic development for Alzheimer’s and related neurodegenerative diseases. Sessions will consist of 30 minute presentations with ample time for Q&A, and the program will include sessions for networking, partnering/mentoring, and posters presented by young investigators.


OBJECTIVES

Train a cadre of interdisciplinary scientists in the principles of drug discovery for neurodegenerative disease.

Provide a platform to exchange ideas, knowledge and resources about drug discovery for neurodegenerative disease.

Stimulate pre-clinical research in the discovery and testing of novel compounds aimed at the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative disease.

Build public-private partnerships that will accelerate drug discovery for neurodegenerative disease.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

Challenges and opportunities in academic drug discovery

Fundamentals of medicinal chemistry relevant to drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseases

Newest trends in assay development and high throughput screening (HTS)

Go-no-go criteria for preclinical development, including pharmacokinetic behavior of candidate compounds, aqueous solubility, blood-brain barrier permeability, preliminary safety, and manufacturing issues

Study design considerations for animal model experiments

Biologics for challenging CNS targets and strategies to optimize brain delivery

Requirements for an Investigational New Drug (IND) application

Commercialization strategies for developing science into products

Best practices for working with tech transfer offices, managing intellectual property, and the role of funding organizations

Funding & resources for preclinical therapeutics development for neurological disorders
