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.WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?Challenges and opportunities in academic drug discoveryFundamentals of medicinal chemistry relevant to drug discovery for neurodegenerative diseasesNewest 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 issuesStudy design considerations for animal model experimentsBiologics for challenging CNS targets and strategies to optimize brain deliveryRequirements for an Investigational New Drug (IND) applicationCommercialization strategies for developing science into productsBest practices for working with tech transfer offices, managing intellectual property, and the role of funding organizationsFunding & resources for preclinical therapeutics development for neurological disorders
