2 Day Conference: The 7th Annual Drug Repositioning, Repurposing and Rescue (Chicago, United States - June 26-27, 2018) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

As the Single Longest-Running Conference in the Space, this annual event continues to be the go to meeting for pharma executives, academicians, researchers and patient advocacy groups who want to keep abreast of new developments in the field, learn from experts and meet possible collaborators and partners.

Drug repositioning has emerged as a cost-effective and quicker alternative to traditional drug discovery and development. Both approved drugs and those that have proven safe in Phase I/II trials save vast amounts of clinical development time and money. By mining existing drugs for new uses, researchers can focus instead on latter stage clinical trials.
