The biopharmaceutical industry needs novel approaches to early-stage drug development that better manage risk, lower capital cost and improve research effectiveness, create diverse portfolios, leverage risk-tolerant capital, and access new capital sources. With these issues in mind, the Milken Institute and FasterCures hosted a Financial Innovations Lab on July 19, 2011, in New York City. The Lab was convened to address an industry-wide gap in funding for early-stage drug developmentā€”the so-called Valley of Death. This report, Fixes in Financing: Financial Innovations for Translational Research, highlights various approaches for managing and financing translational research that were discussed during the Lab.
