Breakthrough therapies are changing the market for new medicines targeting life-threatening diseases, and redefining R&D strategies from small biotech to large pharmaceutical companies. With the promise to drastically shorten drug development timelines, breakthrough designation (BTD) affords advantages including expedited FDA review, flexibility in IND requirements, and options for smaller clinical trials. In this complimentary live webinar open to life science professional globally, WuXi brings together industry experts to discuss their discovery stories, lessons learned that led to the coveted status of BTD, and their perspectives on how BTD is redefining the R&D landscape.
