CDD’s inaugural CDD Town Hall Webinar explored how Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) have inspired efforts to improve the pace of drug discovery.

Guided by a distinguished panel of speakers, this Town Hall style webinar examined:

  • Various approaches for establishing successful PPPs
  • How PPPs have affected the drug discovery efforts for Commercial and Neglected Tropical Diseases
  • The roles played by the NIH, the private sector and academia within PPPs
