It used to be that patient groups were involved at the beginning (advocating for research) and the end (demanding access) of drug discovery and development. Today – enabled by the emergence of and access to new technologies and spurred on by the shortcomings of traditional drug discovery and development – rare disease communities are aggregating data, establishing collaborative research networks and nimble partnerships with industry. Even creating companies to accelerate the speed and enhance the productivity of drug discovery.  Hear about who and what’s behind these models, and implications even beyond rare disease, in particular for investors, from expert stakeholders in a stand-and-deliver format that will keep you energized and engaged.
