Building a Balanced Cancer Portfolio
Venue: Swissotel Boston
|Event Date/Time: Nov 14, 2002||End Date/Time: Nov 15, 2002|
To specifically address the current needs and emerging strategic issues in portfolio planning for oncology drugs, the Institute for International Research presents Building a Balanced Cancer Portfolio. The mission of the conference is to provide attendees with insight into the framework behind portfolio management, business development, and licensing decisions for cancer therapeutics.
Day One provides an overview of the oncology deals completed over the last five years and examines the role of licensing in oncology planning. The strategic and business implications of the developing therapeutics alongside diagnostics are presented. Risk management tools for optimizing drug development and maximizing commercial success are discussed. The potential (and pitfalls) inlicensing novel drug classes and mechanisms are also examined. Finally, the conference explores regulatory strategies of accelerating development and reviews regulatory due diligence considerations for your acquisition candidate.
Day Two begins with a presentation on how to best allocate limited resources for a portfolio. An evaluation of the risks of in-licensing early stage cancer drugs are presented alongside the risks of commercializing a portfolio of me-too drugs. The conference continues with a discussion of the potential of targeted therapy to increase the sales of cancer drugs already in your portfolio. New uses for approved cancer drugs and new combinations are examined as ways to fully realize value of your existing portfolio. As a smaller company, understand the scientific due diligence process at big pharma and why things seem to take so long. Finally, review the process by which a former platform company can utilize strategic alliances to create value in cancer therapeutics
