Why You Should Attend

Strategic Drug Repositioning and New Indications Forum

Drug discovery and development is a time consuming, expensive and risky enterprise

Drug discovery and development is a time consuming, expensive and risky enterprise. In order to accelerate the process with relatively lower costs and reduced risks of failure, pharmaceutical companies have adopted drug repositioning as an alternative approach.


Enhancing R&D productivity has captured a growing interest in the pharmaceutical industry. Intense competition for attractive drug candidates has made in-licensing an expensive and sometimes a difficult option for sustaining the pharmaceutical company’s portfolio. Repositioning failed or already marketed drug candidates for alternative disease indications offers a valuable opportunity to alleviate pipeline gaps and increases success rates.


How to develop a strategy and business models for drug repositioning? What are the best screening technology platforms? How to overcome IP challenges?  This marcus evans forum will delve into these key issues to ensure companies can overcome their challenges in drug repositioning and new indications.



Key Topics

  • Explore the latest screening platforms to find new indications
  • Benefit from case studies on successfully repositioned drugs
  • Maximise your knowledge of patent protection
  • Learn about reformulation of existing compounds
