4. Portfolio Review

If your submission is accepted:
Together we’ll establish priority, the statement of work, stage gate go/no go decisions, timelines, roles and responsibilities. We’ll agree on a public disclosure or publication plan. We’ll determine the model and allocate resources.

If your submission is not accepted:
WARF Therapeutics will provide you with feedback and decision rationale. We will suggest experiments that could increase your chance of acceptance.

5. Program Execution

These three groups will guide program execution:

  • Program Team: responsible for decisions within stage.
