Call for Presentations: Apply for One of 48 Slots Dedicated to Innovative Approaches to Medical Research

Apply for One of 48 Presentation Slots Dedicated to Innovative Approaches to Medical Research Submit your application today. Space is limited; decisions are made on a rolling basis.
By now we hope you're aware of Partnering for Cures, a first-of-its-kind conference being hosted by FasterCures December 1-3 in New York. Partnering for Cures will bring together a unique audience of philanthropists, medical research foundations, and biopharmaceutical companies interested in building cross-sector collaborations to accelerate the search for cures.

Partnering for Cures is inviting nonprofit foundations that fund medical research to apply to present their cutting-edge work and innovative strategies to potential investors and partners. This is one of the unique features of the event, which distinguishes it from other conferences on medical research or philanthropy, and is based on the proven model of industry partnering meetings. We are planning to feature 48 medical research foundations, each with the opportunity to provide a 25-minute overview of its strategy, operations, assets, capabilities, and funding needs to an audience of potential investors and partners.

There is an open application process for these slots, and we want to encourage your organization to apply for one. An external advisory committee will help review applications and provide input to the selection process. Your completed application will be reviewed by our committee and organizations will be notified of the decision, the first round in late-October and on a rolling basis after that. Space is limited, however, so organizations are encouraged to apply early. FasterCures will provide successful applicants with a template for their presentations and Web-based training to help foundations maximize this opportunity.

You must register for the conference in order to apply for a slot. Click here for information on the registration and application process.

We very much hope you avail of this unique opportunity!
