Previously, we have brought human clinical trials within 3 years. However, timing really depends of the project itself. We need to answer questions such as, which animal models should be used for your particular project? Are the animal models already available? Is there specific challenges associated with the project? We are usually able to complete the first phase (screening on worms) within 6 months. From there, it may require 12 more months to validate them in fish and 18 more months to confirm the results in mammals. Altogether, we believe that we can bring one lead molecule to enter clinical trial in less than 3 years.
