Global Roundup of Pharmaceutical Research capabilities and Opportunities

This session will feature six 30-minute Invited Lectures from diverse regions of the world: the Middle East, the Far East, Africa, Europe, North America and South America. Each speaker is to cover the status of biomedical research in their respective regions, especially as it relates to the discovery of new therapeutics and diagnostics for the public good. The very nature of pharmaceutical research has changed dramatically over the past decade, with globalization and networked interactions becoming more prevalent. In addition, there is an increased emphasis being placed upon diseases and disorders of the third world such as for the neglected diseases that afflict one-sixth of humanity. This track of the 7th ICDDT promoted a more globally integrate review of pharmaceutical research.
