University of California-San Francisco Key Developments

University of California, San Francisco and the Centre for Drug Research and Development Signs Drug Development Agreement Collaboration to Take New Medications from Laboratory to Commercial Development Stage

University of California, San Francisco and The Centre for Drug Research and Development (CDRD), announced a collaborative affiliation to identify potential medications and develop them to the stage where they are commercially attractive to private sector partners. The agreement is designed to address a challenging problem in drug development: the so-called 'Valley of Death' between the discovery of a potential therapy and the point where it is of commercial interest to pharmaceutical or biotech companies or private sector investors. During this phase, the financial burden of continued research without return can often mean that a promising medication is never developed further. The collaboration is the first in the United States for CDRD, which has similar agreements with institutions around the world, including Oxford University and the Universities of Tokyo, and Sydney. A scientific team from CDRD will visit UCSF in November in order to explore specific collaborative opportunities with UCSF researchers. Researchers interested in meeting with CDRD to discuss possible collaborations are encouraged to contact Kaley Wilson, PhD, associate director of partnerships.
