Academician Erdan Dong of CAE delivered a speech at the meeting. He said that the Ministry of Science and Technology clearly pointed out in the 2022-2023 Action Plan for Improving the Technological Innovation Ability of Enterprises that the country will further strengthen the precise implementation of policies, guide enterprises to strengthen the key core technology research, and support enterprises to carry out basic and cutting-edge research on forward-looking layout. In this special period, all clinical experts, pharmaceutical research and development teams, enterprise representatives and so on, have overcome various difficulties to get together for the same goal and vision, which is the embodiment of mission and sentiment. This meeting is really a good example of the combination of pharmacy and clinical medicine, as well as the combination of medical treatment and enterprise. On the road of innovative drug research and development, we believe that with this multi-level cooperation between government, industry, university, research and application, we can accelerate the transformation process of innovative results and benefit the majority of patients.
Jiancheng Wang, Director of the Scientific Research Division of Peking University Medical Department, pointed out that technology, talent and inclusion are the three main elements of innovation. Over the years, under the leadership of Academician Jie Qiao, Peking University Third Hospital has actively integrated into the national scientific and technological innovation development strategy, actively explored measures of transformation of medical scientific and technological achievements, including system construction, institution construction and team construction. The hospital established Innovation Research Institute, Clinical Medical Center, Innovation and Transformation Center, Joint Research and Development Center of Colleges and Enterprises and so on. All these have effectively promoted the innovation and transformation of scientific and technological achievements of the hospital, and provided a good reference for the construction of the common technology supply system and the transformation system of scientific and technological achievements in the process of scientific and technological achievements transformation. The platform of Peking University Third Hospital·Leadingpharm Improved New Medicine and Intelligent Development Joint Research and Development Center will focus on specific groups such as children and tumors, go deep into the clinical frontline, effectively tap the unmet clinical needs, give full play to the important role of drug delivery technology in the research and development of improved new drugs, and make concerted efforts to break through key technical bottlenecks, and provide new ideas and new measures for the intelligent development of improved new drugs.
Chunli Song, Vice President of Peking University Third Hospital, has high hopes for the joint research and development center. He said that the establishment of the joint research and development center is a major change from an industrial mass production to a people-oriented precision medical treatment, and a major change from "the amount of drugs is basically guess, the use of drugs is basically break" to the precise and personalized use of drugs for the elderly, children and other special groups. He hope that all academic members will actively contribute their opinions and suggestions to truly build the improved new drug intelligence platform into an international first-class brand project.
"The research and development of both innovative drugs and generic drugs should be guided by the clinical needs of patients, while taking into account the commercial transformation ability and commercial value. The regulatory strategy, research and development strategy, market prediction and legal feasibility are indispensable as the four supporting points. By analyzing the number and sales data of innovative drugs and improved new drugs in the past five years, we can see that compared with the development of original new drugs, on the basis of known active ingredients，the structure, dosage form, prescription process, route of administration, indications and so on have been optimized, and have become the main force of new drug research and development with its clear mechanism of action, clinical efficacy, short development cycle, high rate of return, and huge market space. By analyzing the listed products, we can find that the market of the products is not in direct proportion to their technical difficulties, and drug delivery is the key to the proprietary drugs. " Liang Zhao, director of FDA/CDER/Department of Modeling and Simulation of Generic Drug Evaluation, made the theme report of Modeling Advance for Drug Delivery, which provided us with new thinking on the development of improved new drugs.
Deputy Director of the Drug Clinical Trial Institution of Peking University Third Hospital, Director of the Joint Research and Development Center, Dongyang Liu, made the theme report of Opportunities and Challenges of the College's New Drug Development: Our Task Discussion. He introduced the research and development of the joint research and development platform and the expert team, the platform operation mode, project initiation and development strategy, as well as the expected scientific research achievements of the platform in the short, medium and long term in the future. The joint research and development center will gather clinicians, academic committee experts, Leadingpharm and drug clinical trial institutions to serve as an efficient transformant and research model innovation team, which will follow the guidance of the unmet clinical needs, form a new model of intelligent development of improved new drugs, explore and incubate new products, new technologies and new strategies, and improve the hospital's development and transformation ability and clinical discipline innovation ability, jointly enable and accelerate the innovation and development of improved new drugs in China.
