Pharmaceutical Pipeline Presentations – A Pharmaceutical Pipeline report will be a 10 minute presentation and will also have the opportunity to present their research as a poster presentation. A Pharmaceutical Pipeline submission should include those with early clinical data (Phase 1 and 2) on any CNS compound for which Phase 3 data has not been presented. The goal is to generate enthusiasm for the many novel compounds under exploration, most of which have not reached Phase 3. This is not to exclude presentations of clinical data on compounds currently in Phase 3 targeted to truly untested mechanisms since such data would also be of great interest.  View submission instructions for a Pharmaceutical Pipeline Presentation.
