About Event

Welcome to the 5th Antifibrotic Drug Development Summit (AFDD)

Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, and delegates who joined us for the online summit! If you are interested in the 2022 event, please get in touch at info@hansonwade.com

The 5th Antifibrotic Drug Development Summit will provide a unique opportunity to gain cross-discipline actionable insights into how the latest scientific research is being applied to fibrosis pipeline progress. Network with industry pioneers in hot areas of drug development, specifically IPF, NASH, scleroderma, IBD, ILD, CKD, and more to apply disease-specific lessons agnostically, and understand how the industry can achieve the crowning glory of pan-fibrosis antifibrotic drugs

Unmissable Highlights for 2021: 


Join the active discussion surrounding redefining approvable clinical endpoints with the FDA to enhance opportunities for creative clinical trial design and drive your clinical development 


Engage with early initiatives to establish clinical development programs in IBD-associated fibrosis with Cleveland Clinic to kickstart your intestinal fibrosis pipeline as this grows in interest for biopharma 


Investigate the buzz around reprogramming epithelial cells to promote tissue repair in fibrotic disorders with Genentech to understand new strategies for regenerative medicine and overcome mechanistic bottlenecks


Gain vital insights from Pfizer on how the industry can revolutionize the translatability of current disease models and collaboratively guide the creation of technologies that can better mimic human physiology


Embrace more successful clinical trial design with an enhanced focus on patient-reported outcomes with Novartis to identify precision medicine approaches, promote patient engagement, and discuss regulatory barriers to novel endpoints
