NIH Blueprint for Neurotherapeutics: A novel approach to early-stage drug discovery research funding

To facilitate drug discovery and development by the neuroscience community, the NIH established the Blueprint Neurotherapeutics Network (BPN), which offers neuroscience researchers funding for drug discovery and development activities that can be conducted in their own laboratories and the opportunity to collaborate with NIH-funded consultants and contract research organizations (CROs) that specialize in medicinal chemistry, pharmacokinetics, toxicology, formulations development, GMP chemical synthesis, and Phase I clinical testing. Researchers who initiate BPN projects will receive intellectual property rights to the drug candidates developed within the BPN. This webinar will describe upcoming opportunities for academic researchers and small businesses to apply for BPN resources. Click here to register.
