Lean Life Science and Cancer Research Horizons Launch the Oncology Development Programme (ODP2) to Accelerate Development of High Impact Novel Cancer Innovations
- Targeted programme to identify and accelerate novel oncology innovations into commercially attractive assets
- Supported by unique insights from a collaboration of leading pharma, CROs, and subject matter experts in residence from across the global oncology R&D ecosystem.
Alderley Edge, UK – 16 November 2022: Today Lean Life Science (LLS), an organisation dedicated to catalysing innovation in life science through partnership, announces the opening of its flagship Oncology Development Programme – ODP2. In collaboration with four of the top ten global pharma, Cancer Research UK’s Cancer Research Horizons, Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) and over 20 specialist contract research organisations, ODP2 aims to identify, de-risk and catalyse commercially viable UK-based innovations to improve diagnosis and treatment of cancer and accelerate the translation of emerging cancer research for patient benefit.
Applications are sought from academics and early-stage companies with a defined oncology-focused innovation. ODP2 will give the next big UK-based breakthroughs in oncology access to bespoke expert scientific review, clinical study design, technical gap analysis, financial / business value modelling and integrated project planning.
Up to 100 oncology innovations will be selected by the Programme Faculty Panel, to participate in a fully immersive one-day virtual masterclass on Tuesday 24th January 2023. Hearing directly from pharma, investors and other key industry experts, participants will gain insights into how oncology assets are assessed and developed. Participants will also receive a detailed overview of the programme and hear the first-hand experiences of previous participants.
Delivered by a unique team of seasoned oncology R&D professionals, commercial, and investment specialists, ODP2 consists of three parts. Part one is the fully immersive one-day masterclass; Part two is a three-day deep dive into the highly successful Lean Life Science approach to developing oncology assets and securing investment and is an opportunity to engage directly with pharma and CRO experts; Part three, by application, will see selected participants work closely with the partners to create and validate the integrated plans necessary to ensure successful development and attract potential funding.
