Drug Innovation

• Whilst drug innovation is complex and requires numerous brainstorming, the process is not definite and rather fragile. Therefore, it is necessary to utilize expertise in many fields including variety of stakeholders to achieve the desired innovation.

• Successful drug research and development must be least time consuming and requires the least resource in translating scientific thinking through drug discovery, clinical research, approval by FDA and finally delivery to hand of patients.

• The cost of drug research and development has been increasing due to limitations from both the government sector and the increasing need for clinical research in order to meet the stricter criteria of drug safety.
