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.
