Title of the talk: Driving the next generation of drug discovery for kidney diseases

Short summary:The next generation of treatments for kidney disease demands drugs that can achieve ever greater efficacy with the potential to stop disease processes, or maybe even cure them. This bold ambition requires a significant investment in research and development. In this talk you will learn about why we in AstraZeneca place great importance on scientific innovation together to drive drug development, and will highlight how we are using state of the art technologies and data resources to select the right therapeutic target for kidney disease. Time allowing, examples in small molecule and RNA approaches will show how we are developing novel pharmacological capabilities.
