Vodcast: Dr Adriano Flora, The Jackson Laboratory

The latest sponsored DDW Sitting Down With vodcast features Dr Adriano Flora, Director of Business Development at The Jackson Laboratory (JAX). He discusses alternatives to non-human primates, the key benefits of this, and what impact will they have on the future of drug development. Moreover, he answers questions on the key breakthroughs in recent years in this field and how have these impacted future success, as well as challenges in the clinic that must be overcome to ensure this success is achieved.

Dr Flora obtained his PhD in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of Milan, after which he moved to the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, to study the molecular mechanisms underlying cellular differentiation and tumorigenesis in the nervous system. In 2011, he returned to Europe and joined a global model generation service provider. In 2019, he joined JAX and has since been involved in developing and commercialising translational platforms for drug developers.
