Expert Workshop: Expedited Drug Development for Promising Therapies

Event Materials

Summary

On December 15, the Engelberg Center convened an expert workshop to discuss expedited drug development for promising therapies.

This workshop brought together a diverse set of stakeholders who discussed the following issues:

  • Existing tools for facilitating expedited market access;
  • Opportunities for improving and expanding upon these tools;
  • Therapeutic areas most in need of an expedited development pathway and how promising therapies can be defined;
  • Methodological approaches to enable a compressed drug development timeline; and
  • Potential evidence gaps that may result in the post-market environment for products approved through an expedited pathway.
