Advancing Rare Disease Drug Discovery: The Need for Successful Collaborations

Program Summary

What are the elements of a successful collaboration? Who can contribute to the project? How do you build your team? How do you structure leadership, establish goals and create accountability within a collaboration?

We’ll discuss these questions and review examples of successful collaborations in this complimentary one-day symposium hosted by Charles River. During the symposium, rare disease researchers will network with academic and industry leaders, share best practices and review case studies of successful collaborative discovery programs. The agenda also includes discussions on the role of genomics in rare disease drug development.

Join us at a symposium hosted by Charles River on October 25, 2016 in New York City to participate in the discussion and distill new insights from several prolific, venerable and successful collaborations in the field.
