[it is] the first national-scale effort to address pollinator declines. “All the research (and research funding) in the world will not help pollinator populations if there are no financial incentives to plant pollinator habitat and there is continued overuse of pesticides, In recent weeks, he has collaborated in an effort to analyze travel patterns between China and the rest of the world, AMS researchers say the leveling off would be consistent with a dark matter particle with a mass of 1 teraelectron volt (TeV).

National Press Club packed with representatives from industry patient groups and federal officials NIH Director Francis Collins described the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP) The goal is to cut down on the more than 95% failure rate for drug candidates As a result it now takes some 10 years and more than $1 billion to develop a successful drug By combining forces companies and academics hope to cut costs and speed things up by sorting through a wealth of new genomic and molecular data on disease biology to find the most promising new drug targets “This is a job too big for any single group” Collins said The 10 companies which include giants like GlaxoSmithKline Merck Eli Lilly and Sanofi will put up about one-half of the $230 million; NIH is providing the other half AMP which will also involve patients groups will be overseen by the Foundation for the NIH Although the foundation already oversees various similar-sounding public-private partnerships this one will be more comprehensive participants say Pfizer President of Worldwide Research & Development Mikael Dolsten explained: “What we would like to have is a … GPS for human disease” Collins said NIH spent more than 2 years in “intense discussions” with companies to put together the partnership and it has personal significance As director of NIH’s genome institute Collins helped lead the massive sequencing effort that produced the first draft of the human genome in 2001 The Human Genome Project has since been criticized for failing to appreciably improve medical care or drive down costs For example researchers have found more than 1000 genetic variants pointing to proteins that predispose some people to disease But only about a half-dozen promising drug targets have come out of this effort Collins notes The problem Collins says is not a lack of candidates but the challenge of sorting through “a deluge of information” AMP will do this by bringing together academic scientists and industry for several 3- to 5-year pilot projects Participants will share data openly (In some cases access will be restricted to researchers in order to protect patient privacy) For companies the payoff will come later when they develop compounds to block the newly identified drug targets The projects include: Alzheimer’s disease—At $130 million this project will receive the lion’s share of AMP funding It will look for new biomarkers for disease progression such as imaging data or molecules in blood and spinal fluid The biomarkers will be studied as part of four NIH-funded clinical trials that are testing ways to delay or prevent the disease The project will also analyze existing brain tissue samples from Alzheimer’s patients to validate biological targets develop network models for late-onset Alzheimer’s and screen compounds against novel targets Type 2 diabetes—This $58 million project will pool genetic and clinical data on up to 150000 patients some contributed by companies and share this information through a web portal One goal is to understand in more detail the complications of diabetes such as kidney failure Dolsten says The project will also search for rare individuals with unusually severe or mild disease who could be studied to validate targets? The investigators who win the grants will then become part of joint disease steering committees. throughout the day if they had constant access to email.who led the study, many of them in the prime of life. has called “considerable uncertainty and complex trade-offs”.
