Blueprint Neurotherapeutics Network

The Neurotherapeutics Grand Challenge

Most nervous system disorders lack effective treatment, and most of the potential neurotherapeutic drugs identified in basic research do not make it to human testing:

The Blueprint Neurotherapeutics Network

The NIH Blueprint established the Neurotherapeutics Network as a pipeline between academic and industry drug development research (View the project pipeline). The Network offers neuroscience researchers a "virtual pharma" to develop promising hit compounds from chemical optimization through Phase I clinical testing.
