TaNeDS Global Program

For a collaborative drug discovery initiative for universities and research institutes in Europe and the East Coast of the United States, we launched Take a New Challenge for Drug Discovery (TaNeDS) Global program.
The TaNeDS program was started in Japan in 2011 to help discover new lines of research through open innovation. From 2013, it expanded outside of Japan, opening up to worldwide researchers. The aim of the program will continue to be increasing collaborative opportunities between Daiichi Sankyo and researchers outside of Japan.
