Participate In Initial Industry-FDA Meetings
Pre-IND meetings are organized by industry/small business Sponsors of the investigational therapy. Because involvement of patient and patient groups in these types of meetings is still evolving, it is important to stay aware of the scheduling of any pre-IND meetings focused on treatments relevant to your disease to maximize the opportunity for input.
- Maintain regular contact with academic and industry researchers focused on your disease.
- Find other potential Industry Sponsors using the tips and resources provided in the NCATS Toolkit Getting Started: Build Relationships With Key Partners.
