Why Now?

Now is the time for CNS neuroscience drug development. We have entered a time when truly rational drug discovery and development is possible and where new discoveries, tools, technologies, biomarkers and insights enable improved development.

Investor and industry interest is booming, yet key challenges remain that can only be addressed by bringing together the leading translational research, clinicians, entrepreneurs, CEOs, CSOs and CMOs from the leading biotech companies, with relevant therapeutic area and business development heads from big pharma and large biotech, as well as the Partners and Directors heading neuroscience investment at the most active and important investment funds.


The 2024 pilot edition established Bio-Neuroscience as a unique, high-level and interactive summit providing participants exceptional value in terms of the experience, insight, access and impact.
