  1. 1. Steve Hoffmann Scientific Program Manager The Biomarkers Consortium Inflammation and Immunity Steering Committee Strategic Public-Private Partnership with the FNIH
  2. 2. 2Partners for Innovation, Discovery, Health l The Biomarkers Consortium ■ Qualifies biomarkers for specific applications in diagnosing disease, predicting therapeutic response, or improving clinical practice ■ Addresses a broad range of disease / therapeutic areas ■ Generates information useful to inform regulatory decision-making ■ Fosters the exchange of knowledge and expertise among industry, academics, and government leaders ■ Pre-competitive; makes consortium project results broadly available to the entire scientific community Our Founding Partners: FDA, NIH, FNIH, PhRMA, BIO, CMS Founded in 2006 to develop and qualify biomarkers using new and existing technologies
  3. 3. 3Partners for Innovation, Discovery, Health l Membership Benefits ■ Facilitates discussions with key opinion leaders and regulatory decision makers ■ Provides an integrated approach to cross-sector partnerships ■ Establishes an effective forum to generate consensus science ■ Enables sharing of data and expertise to collaboratively address unmet medical needs The Biomarkers Consortium:

  9. 9. 9Partners for Innovation, Discovery, Health l Project Development Process Initial Idea or Concept Approved Project Concept Project Plan Approved Project Launch 1 5432 Ideas are submitted and reviewed by Steering Committees Projects are launched after funding is secured by FNIH Project plans are developed by Project Teams and reviewed by the Steering Committees and Executive Committee
  10. 10. 10Partners for Innovation, Discovery, Health l Principles and Policies ■ Key governing policies negotiated prior to launch of Biomarkers Consortium with principals/legal counsel representing the FNIH, NIH, FDA, PhRMA and BIO: ■ Intellectual property (IP) and data sharing ■ Antitrust ■ Selection and award of grants/contracts ■ Confidentiality ■ Conflict of interest ■ Policies, project concept submission form, and other information available at
  11. 11. 11Partners for Innovation, Discovery, Health l Intellectual Property and Data Sharing Policies ■ Facilitate the use of data/technologies in research efforts while ensuring: ■ Adequate incentives to commercialize biomarker technologies ■ Broad, fair distribution of discoveries to maximize public health benefit ■ Address issues with both pre-existing IP and data, and data/IP that may be brought into a project ■ Address issues with IP and data, and data/IP generated as a result of a project; specific treatment of IP and data access: ■ Is agreed to by PT members ■ Included in the Project Plan ■ Approved by the EC
