The original vision for the ARDD was to bring together top academics and big pharmaceutical companies together to develop a pathway for advancing aging research into the pharma R&D pipelines in the most credible way and within the established
I am on track with this goal and have already demonstrated that this platform can outperform traditional pharma and biotech on pre-clinical success rates, time, and cost. We were able to discover truly novel therapeutics that show efficacy in preclinical models and are moving into human trials.
My plan is to also make this platform available to the pharmaceutical companies that are truly interested in transforming their research and development to accelerate and increase the probability of drug discovery and development efforts. Within this platform, we also managed to build one of the most sophisticated knowledge management systems on the planet that can trace innovation and trends from grants to market over 25-30 year periods. I plan to continue developing this system and using it to uncover the most promising trends and directions in biomedical research.
