With the costs of discovering and developing a new drug spiralling to over $900m, the demand for more accurate and predictive in vitro models has never been greater.
By arming researchers with an in-depth toxicity and efficacy profile for candidate pipeline drugs, a new breed of models offer the prospect of saving drug developers millions. High potential compounds will be prioritized, animal use reduced and clinical strategy directed by progress in the predictive models field.
Realizing such immense potential will require thought leaders to address very specific challenges. Calls to action are being made to validate the utility and practicality of 3D culture, stem cell and organ-on-a-chip models and confront attendant issues in assay development. Industry and academia also agree that more must be done to productively integrate in vitro and in vivo acquired knowledge and translate that into clinical success.
By engaging with senior figures at Pfizer, Amgen, AstraZeneca, UCB, Novartis and many others, we have addressed these concerns and constructed an unbeatable agenda. As such, this meeting promises high level, commercially directed discussion of the most pressing technical and strategic issues at hand.
