Did you know only about five percent of diseases have a safe, effective treatment? The high failure rate of drug development led to the creation of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences nearly 10 years ago. Learn about how NIH’s newest center is using translational science and state-of-the-art technologies to bring more treatments to all people more quickly during a special virtual event on Tuesday, Dec. 7 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. ET. 

Featured topics will spotlight the transformational power of data, novel approaches for de-risking a drug’s journey along the preclinical pathway, crosscutting solutions for addressing many diseases at a time and high-impact innovations in clinical research. 

The event opens with remarks by NIH director Dr. Francis Collins and NCATS acting director Dr. Joni Rutter. Speakers will discuss remaining roadblocks and new opportunities through conversations and lightning-round talks.

The event is free and open to the public. Learn more about the event and register:
