Noon-1:00pm


August 6, 2014

Dr. Cummings will describe the process of how a laboratory observation such as the effect of a chemical on cells under a microscope goes through the process of being tested in animals and then in humans to see if it can help patients with Alzheimer’s disease or some other condition. The process is long (average 13 years) and expensive (usually $1B). After being tested, the drug information is reviewed by the FDA and, if approved, can be marketed. Only marketed drugs reach the millions of people who need them. Dr. Cummings will provide an overview and perspective on this process and explain how the Ruvo Center plays an important role in developing new drugs.
