Bringing research and innovations for neglected tropical diseases to the next level: knowledge exploitation

Together with representatives from the Pediatric Praziquantel Consortium, PDE4NPD, and MMV-PDP

Translating biomedical research and innovations into health solutions can be a cumbersome process, even more so for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Despite a growing knowledge on the pathophysiology and etiology of NTDs, the number of novel diagnostics, drugs and vaccines entering tropical medicine practice remains disappointing.

Divided over two sessions, you will learn more about partnerships that are filling the NTD product pipeline, and those that put great effort into translating scientific hypothesis into clinical practice.

Finally, a number of entrepreneurs will be invited who will discuss the business models (and the associated problems) they use to explore innovations in NTDs.
