Connect CEO writes paper

Duane Roth, chief executive officer of Connect San Diego, and a UCSD adjunct professor authored a new Kauffman Foundation paper released recently that claims the United States could speed the flow of new therapeutic drugs into thirsty industry pipelines by creating a new model for drug discovery and development.

Roth and Pedro Cuatrecasas, a biochemist and adjunct professor for the Departments of Pharmacology and Internal Medicine at UCSD, say their “distributed partnering model” could foster productive, efficient advancement of biomedical innovations. The paper, “The Distributed Partnering Model for Drug Discovery and Development,” is an outgrowth of the 2009 Translational Medicine Alliance Forum, created to facilitate collaboration between the biomedical research and drug development industries. The forum is sponsored by the Kauffman Innovation Network and the Translational Medicine Alliance.
