R&D Collaboration in Pharma

A cool site (by Collaborative Drug Discovery, or CDD) that allows researchers to collaborate in drug discovery.

There are three levels of information sharing available:

  • “Vault”:  provides for private storage of a group’s information
  • “Collaborate”: provides for selective sharing of information with selected partners
  • “Public”: self-explanatory

I recently spoke with a top theorist in the pharma industry.  He suggested that the “black-white continuum between sharing all data and sharing no data” is archaic and that a new model is needed for a world in which innovation has decelerated and in which multiple companies are working on similar therapies.  CDD may provide part of the answer to this challenge.
