Educational Panel : Chronic Disease Innovation: Issues and Opportunities in Addressing Unmet Need for Small and Large Companies
While a majority of venture funding goes into development of oncology and rare disease treatments, the broader population with chronic diseases can also look forward to innovations from established biopharmas as well as smaller companies with promising new approaches. This session will highlight exciting pipelines for unmet need in NASH and ESRD and review the structural challenges of clinical development, as well as strategies for working with providers, payers, and patients on new medicines for high-cost chronic conditions.
