Academic Collaborations: Drivers and Constraints


Failure Rate of Drugs:

  • The failure rate of drugs has increased dramatically over the years and thus an Increase in the drug development cost. Currently, only 0.4 drugs get developed per billion dollar spending. By extrapolating the current trend, hardly any drugs will be produced per billion dollar spending by 2023

Requirement of technical/therapeutic area expertise

  • The subject matter expertise provided by the therapeutic area experts is unmatched in various areas. Therefore, the analysis provided by the academia experts and thus the pharmaceutical players have to engage the academia, either for the execution of the entire clinical trial or for specific functions like analysis, regulatory, etc.

Adoption of Open Sourcing/Innovation models among the pharmaceutical players

  • There is an increased adoption of open sourcing/innovations among the pharmaceutical players, by engaging various CROs, academia and peer pharma


Increased lead time of the engagements and also the process

  • Increased lead time of the academia in conducting the clinical trials may decrease the demand/adoption of hybrid trials (both CRO and academia are engaged)
