We Are FasterCures

Looking across diseases, FasterCures brings together patient advocates, researchers, investors and policymakers from every sector of the medical research and development system to eliminate the roadblocks that get in the way of a faster cure.

Patients Count

For too long, patients’ unmet medical needs have been an afterthought, rather than a starting point, for developing medical products that address their priorities and deliver value to the health-care system. FasterCures aims to improve health by driving adoption of methods by which patients’ perspectives shape processes for discovering, developing and delivering medical products and services.

Initiatives include:

Policy

Federal investment in research fuels promising scientific discovery and supports the development and delivery of treatments and cures. FasterCures develops health policy solutions to ensure that there are both sufficient resources and a supportive environment for biomedical innovation.

Initiatives include:

Collaboration 2.0

Science is increasingly complex and requires cross-sector, multi-disciplinary collaboration to make progress. FasterCures champions efficient and effective collaborations in biomedical R&D that bring together diverse partners with a shared goal.
