Currently in Russia much effort by private companies, scientific organisations and state structures is focused on innovative drugs development. What will these efforts bring? Will Russian citizens become the main users of newly developed drugs or these drugs will also be available in the international market? Participants, whose expertise ranges from fundamental biological to such advanced stages of drug development as clinical trials, will discuss the goals of boosting innovative pharmaceuticals R&D in Russia; the new technologies used at each stage of drug R&D; the collaborations between stages of drug development; and the trajectories of Russian innovations in the world.
