Neuroscience Drug Development Physicians
Neuroscience Drug Development Physicians is a LinkedIn Group for Physicians supporting Drug Development in the expanding and evolving Neuroscience arena.
This group is for physicians working in Neuroscience Drug Development. Neurology focused research is an area of drug development that lags behind other discipline but many physicians and companies are working diligently to address this unmet medical need. Development is continuing to expand in scope for indications related to cognitive, neuromuscular and neurodegenerative disorders. With the hope of addressing the unmet needs of patients with diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Parkinson's Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Pain, Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder disorder.
Central Nervous System disorders account for more hospitalizations, long-term care, and chronic suffering than nearly all other diseases combined. The medical need in these disorders is very high as the treatment options available are severely limited.
The goal of this forum is for physicians to discuss the scientific and business aspects of neuroscience drug development; to create a space for physicians to discuss their experiences and challenges.
We encourage you to exchange your thoughts, and seek advice from colleagues.
