Forum On Drug Discovery, Development, And Translation Annual Report 2009

NIH’s Francis Collins with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius President Barack Obama at the National Academies About The Forum The Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation was created in 2005 by the Institute of Medicine’s Board on Health Sciences Policy to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to meet and discuss issues of mutual interest in a neutral setting. It includes leaders from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, academia, federal agencies, foundations, and patient groups. The Forum convenes several times each year to identify and discuss key problems and strategies in the discovery, development, and translation of drugs. It commissions papers, convenes workgroups, and fosters collaborations among its members and constituen- cies. In order to engage a wide range of experts, members of the public, and the policy community in discussing specific issues of concern in the science and policy of drug development, the Forum holds regular public workshops and symposia. Proceedings and speaker presentations are disseminated to the public through published summaries and the Forum website www.iom.edu/drug.

The year 2009 saw continued upheaval in the scientific and business landscape of drug development. With the new administration came a renewed emphasis on science, as expressed by President Obama in a speech he delivered at the National Academy of Sciences, "Science is more essential for our prosperity, our security, our health, our environment, and our quality of life than it has ever been before."

The activities of the National Academies’ Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation (the Forum) in 2009 reflected the excitement and dynamism of this environment, focusing on four critical areas:

  • Promoting the scientific basis for the regulation of drugs
  • Transforming clinical research
  • Fostering a robust research environment through collaboration
  • Promoting global leadership in drug development and translation

This was a year to remember for new ground covered. The Forum provided an important lens for its diverse members and the public to collectively reflect, understand, and act on this changing environment.
