Five Reasons to Register Today for Partnering for Cures

Every day, thousands of people are diagnosed with deadly and debilitating diseases for which there are no cures. And yet, it takes 15 years to develop new medical solutions. As you know, no one can do this work alone. Expediting cures requires collaboration.

Partnering for Cures, a first-of-its-kind meeting to be held December 1-3, 2009 in New York City, facilitates these collaborations by bringing together philanthropy, medical research foundations, and the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.

Here are the top five reasons to register today and be a part of this inaugural effort:
  • Learn from "cure entrepreneurs," leaders who have championed some of the most innovative approaches to disease research that are paving the way to a more effective and efficient research system.
  • Find the right research partner who can support your program, move a discovery down the development path, and/or augment your therapeutic pipeline.
  • Identify organizations whose mission and programs match your charitable priorities or complement your business development pipeline.
  • Better understand the processes, policies, and players involved in therapeutic discovery and development in order to make targeted strategic investments and partnership decisions.
  • Hear from some of medical research's most forward-thinking leaders in panels that spotlight solutions to decades-long problems facing the medical research enterprise, including:

Partnering for Cures is convened by FasterCures, the Washington, D.C.-based center of the Milken Institute, that's committed to breaking down the barriers that exist across the research continuum - from basic research to drug development - to clear the path to faster medical progress.
