David Grigg and Fran Sverdrup will discuss their experiences with attracting and developing drug discovery partnerships with industry. Dr. Griggs will speak about his experience in forming and working with a startup company conducting clinical trials for organ fibrosis, and considers strategies to become a “partner of choice” in the evolving drug development landscape. Dr. Sverdrup will discuss his inspiration to find a treatment for Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD) and his effort to successfully attract pharmaceutical interest and foster a long-term partnership.
