The Long Road to a New Medicine: A Pfizer Drug Discovery to Market Board Game

Thursday, June 25, 2009 @ 10:00 AM-12:01 PM

Featured Speaker: Heidi Hope, Ph.D., Senior Principal Scientist, Biological Sciences, Pfizer, and Pfizer Scientists

How are new drugs discovered? How are new medicines tested for safety? What’s required before an investigational drug can be tested in human volunteers? How long does it take before a new drug is approved? Development, marketing, regulatory review… put on your lab coat and play the game of drug discovery, testing and manufacture. In this eye-opening board game you’ll work for a pharmaceutical company and compete with rival companies to get a medicine to market. Prepare to be surprised – the journey from idea to pharmacy shelf is paved with hard work, disappointment, expense, patience, excitement, and the unexpected. Scientists from Pfizer will be on hand to provide the inside scoop on a new medicine’s journey from laboratory to market and answer your questions as you head down the path to the discovery of new medicines in this thought-provoking board game.
