Productivity in the pharmaceutical industry is flagging. It is now clear that the traditional pharmaceutical Research & Development model is not sustainable. New technological innovations in Research & Development may mitigate the situation, but they will not sufficiently reverse the inexorable decline in productivity to salvage the traditional Research & Development model. Instead, radically different business models of Research & Development must be developed, tested and implemented; failure to do so poses a grave threat to the future of the pharmaceutical industry. But new government regulation in areas such as stem cell research and recent advances in technology as seen in transitional medicine, present the industry with significant opportunity to continue forward and prosper.

Confronting such threats and exploring future opportunities is a key purpose to the 5th Modern Drug Discovery & Development Summit in San Diego, CA, on October 14-16, 2009. Registration will allow you unlimited access to 7 tracks and plenary presentations, outlined below:
