HERNDON, Va., July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ExL Events is proud to announce the Collaborations Addressing Vulnerable Populations (CAVP) Forum

,taking place on October 16–17 at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport in Herndon, VA.

There is a need to address the social and economic burdens inflicted by neglected tropical and rare diseases due

to their impact on public health. However, since the affected populations are either too few in number or often located in the developing world, there is a lack of commercial interest in the research and development of therapeutics for these diseases.

With four distinct tracks, the CAVP Forum is designed to provide a holistic view of the challenges facing life science organizations developing treatments for underserved patient populations with unmet medical needs.

Participants can tailor their educational experience by attending sessions from any of the following tracks:

Priority Review Voucher (PRV) track:

The only event to understand the benefits and challenges of developing a drug that would be eligible for a PRV.

Strategic Partnerships for Drug Repurposing track: Designed for drug development professionals who build the strategies, models, and platforms to discover novel indications for previously established drugs.

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) track: Explore the hurdles of multi-sector partnerships, and the impact these partnerships have on regulatory/access strategies and global health programs that encourages capacity building in the developing world.

Pioneering Investment and Business Models for Drug Development track: Provides a platform for traditional and alternative investors to discuss innovative deal structures and investment models that can de-risk collaborations and partnerships, and help assist the development of drugs for unmet medical needs.
