About this Event

3D Drug Discovery and Development Workshop

What does it take to develop an innovative drug from early target ideas through clinical trials to the market?

What are the key decisions that the project team has to make in order to shorten the development time, contain costs, and beat the competition in the market place?

How do internal and external investors trade off critical factors (technical, financial, regulatory and commercial) to maintain a competitive portfolio for long term growth?

What are the kind of time, money, and risk trade-offs teams have to consider as they advance a project?

You can experience all of the above firsthand with the Drug Discovery & Development (3D) Workshop. This interactive simulation allows you to play part of a project team trying to get a virtual drug on the market by end of session while facing the same hurdles faced in real world drug discovery. The learning objectives of this program are to:

Explain the trade-offs between time, money, and product attributes that influence drug development strategies as well as a drug candidate’s likelihood of success.

Understand the goal of Pfizer’s drug development process and what that means in practice.

  • A marketed product with optimal value to the patient.

Describe the different stages and the activities that underlie them.

  • Commercial evaluation, disease area focus, and target selection as the foundation of the discovery and development process
  • Learn the key steps in preclinical, Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3 as well as criteria for advancing to the next phase
  • Recognize the contributions made by the various groups who play a role during each stage
  • How we engage with patients, regulators, physicians, and payers

This workshop is facilitated by senior Pfizer researchers with a broad understanding and experience of the Pfizer drug discovery and development process., Whether you are a discovery scientist, a biotech or pharma executive, or an investor in the real world, and regardless of your actual R&D experiences-as participants of this program you will play a role in a virtual drug discovery team, engage in a 3-4 hours intensive discussion and simulation and experience the challenges and hurdles that all teams meet on the road through drug discovery and development.
