Evaluating the potential of drug repurposing for rare diseases and Covid-19

With a global pandemic in full swing, there is an essential worldwide research effort to identify potential treatments, cures, and vaccines for Covid-19. At this time of international crisis, a large number of companies and researchers are turning to drug repurposing as a potential solution – but what is repurposing and why is it such an attractive route for drug development at this time?
For many years, UK charity Findacure has been discussing and promoting drug repurposing as an essential tool for the development of new treatments for rare diseases. In this webinar, Findacure CEO Rick Thompson will outline the basics of this route to drug development, explain why it is such an appealing approach in tackling both covid-19 and rare conditions, and highlight how the rare disease community has been spearheading advances in drug repurposing over the last few years.
