Calling all Medical Research Innovators

Summer’s almost over and everyone at FasterCures is gearing up for an exciting Fall. We hope you’ve marked your calendars to join us at the fourth annual Partnering for Cures meeting November 28-30 in New York City. It will be here before we know it and amazing panels and speakers are starting to populate the program. 

With less than one month left to apply for one of the 30 innovator presentation slots, we need your applications! If your organization is engaged in an innovative, cross-sector collaboration aimed at reducing the time and cost of getting new medical solutions from discovery to patients, we want to hear from you!

Who can apply? Partnerships that include representatives from two or more of the following sectors – nonprofit foundations, pharmaceutical/biotechnology companies, research institutes, universities, government agencies, investors, and private philanthropists. Collaborations should be established, not merely proposed.

This year we’re particularly (though not exclusively) interested in hearing from partnerships focused on:
  1. Translation/commercialization of early stage discoveries
  2. Data sharing
  3. Novel research tool development
  4. Asset repurposing
  5. Innovative financial models
Each 25 minute presentation will provide an opportunity to engage potential investors, partners, and/or collaborators in moving your existing initiative forward or amplifying its impact. External advisors will help us review applications and develop the Innovator Presentation program agenda.

Remember to get your application in by September 10th and we’ll see you in November!
