Improving and Accelerating Therapeutic Development for Nervous System Disorders
Publisher: National Academies Press 2013
Number of pages: 116
The aim was to examine opportunities to accelerate early phases of drug development for nervous system drug discovery. Workshop participants discussed challenges in neuroscience research for enabling faster entry of potential treatments into first-in-human trials, explored how new and emerging tools and technologies may improve the efficiency of research, and considered mechanisms to facilitate a more effective and efficient development pipeline.
