Role within HIPPOCRATES
Novartis is the lead EFPIA partner which triggered and contributed to the approval of the HIPPOCRATES consortium under the auspices of Innovative Medicine Initiative 2 (IMI2).
The main in-kind contributions from Novartis are (1) direct involvement of Novartis colleagues in several work packages or working groups corresponding to one full-time equivalent person e.g. an executive team member, a translational medicine expert, a biomarker expert, several global medical affairs colleagues and (2) the INVIGORATE2 study for which Novartis committed to share clinical data from the placebo group (up to the 16-week visit) and samples from the placebo group patients (up to the 16-week visit).
