Join the Global Health Innovation Alliance Accelerator and the Triangle Global Health Consortium on April 4th for a workshop exploring the concerns facing start up companies, spin-offs from universities, institutes, the US government and traditional pharmaceutical companies as they partner to develop and distribute new medicines and vaccines.
Developing and distributing medicines and vaccines for a global market involves expanded challenges and issues for the parties involved. Done well, these developments are smooth alliances between multi-functional organizations funded by both public and private organizations. Optimally, the resulting products benefit not just traditional markets but also those in less developed countries and regions. In order to achieve these goals, certain elements are essential:
Global clinical trials
The strategic and social use of intellectual property
Attendees will gain practical skills and knowledge on a broad range of issues, including meeting requirements for partnering with the NIH, foundations, and clinical trial organizations; negotiating license agreements; and managing clinical trials in low and middle income countries. Networking opportunities will be incorporated throughout the day.
