4 What is NEWMEDS? NEWMEDS is an international consortium of scientists that has launched one of the largest ever research academic-industry collaboration projects to find new methods for the development of drugs for schizophrenia and depression. 4

9 What is the intention of NEWMEDS? NEWMEDS brings together top scientists from academic institutions with a wide range of expertise, and partners them with nearly all major biopharmaceutical companies. The project will focus on developing new animal models which use brain recording and behavioural tests to identify innovative and effective drugs for schizophrenia. The project will develop standardised paradigms, acquisition and analysis techniques to apply brain imaging, especially fMRI and PET imaging to drug development. 9

10 What is the intention of NEWMEDS? NEWMEDS will examine how new genetic findings (duplication and deletion or changes in genes) influence the response to various drugs and whether this information can be used to choose the right drug for the right patient. Finally, it will try and develop new approaches for shorter and more efficient trials of new medication – trials that may require fewer patients and give faster results. 10

11 Who supports NEWMEDS? NEWMEDS is funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), a unique large scale public-private partnership between the European Union (represented by the European Commission) and the pharmaceutical industry (represented by the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, EFPIA). IMI aims to put Europe at the forefront of biopharmaceutical innovation and to support more efficient discovery and development of better medicines for patients. 11

12 Key data for NEWMEDS Start date: 1 September 2009 Runtime: 5 years Structure: 11 Workpackages Clusters: System based animal models (A) Translational Technology (B) Patient Stratification (C) 12
