Abstract:

The purpose of the workshop was to examine the challenges and opportunities inherent in government and industry collaborations on HIVAIDS research and therapeutic development. Many of the concerns and suggestions that surfaced during the workshop deliberations, however have broad applications beyond the field of HIVAIDS drug development. Workshop participants explored some of the current impediments to collaboration the implications for progress toward the discovery of novel therapeutic candidates and their development into marketed products, particularly when barriers that discourage or prevent collaborative research may exist and ways to overcome existing obstacles. A variety of perspectives on these issues was presented, including those of government researchers and administrators, the pharmaceutical industry, the biomedical and clinical research communities, congressional staff, and consumer advocates. Drugs, Vaccines, AIDS.
