National Bioscreening Centers Network, NBCN (Project, developed jointly by RAS, RAMS, MSU and NP Orchemed) The main goals of the project (2010-2012): 1. Development and launch an integrated infrastructure of biological screening in Russia for providing discovery of novel innovative medicines. 2. Development of series (30-50) of highly efficient lead-compounds for the most requested fields of medicine and launch of 3-4 innovative drugs on Russian pharma market at 2020. Proposed Structure of NBCN
The most fundamental and lasting subject of synthesis is not production of new compounds, but production of properties. George S. Hammond. Norris Award Lecture, 1968 Drug Discovery – One of the Most Requested Field of Chemistry- In 2007, the global pharmaceutical market grew to US$712 billion (what is about 80% ofGlobal Oil Market).- Year-on-year the global pharmaceutical market increased to 10.7% in 2007, largely as aresult of strong sales for new innovative products and high market growth in emergingpharmaceutical markets such as China, India and Russia.- It is expected that the global pharmaceutical market is forecast to grow to US$929 billion in2012. The report “Pharmaceutical Market Trends, 2008 - 2012”According to the “Strategy of the development of Russian pharmaceuticalindustry till 2020”, approved by the Russian Government it is expected thatabout 30% of all drugs in Russian Pharma Market will be new innovativemedicines.Therefore one of the main line of activity of Russian Academy of Science isthe provision of fundamental scientific background for the development ofnovel promising drug-candidates.
