Drug Development Institute will Expedite Clinical Research
An effort to create the Ohio State Drug Development Institute got under way in 2011, launched by the OSUCCC – James in collaboration with leaders in the colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy and Business. The institute will create a cancer drug development pipeline for taking new compounds through phase II clinical trials. Timothy Wright, a former executive of several pharmaceutical companies, was recruited to direct this effort in conjunction with Brian Cummings, the University’s lead for technology commercialization.
