Partnering for Cures

Posted January 31, 2017

In the world of medicine, collaboration is key. Individuals can learn from each other, share their progress and inspire new approaches to developing cures. That’s the philosophy of FasterCures, Michael Milken’s organization that sponsors Partnering for Cures, an annual conference that brings together hundreds of leaders from around the world to accelerate getting new therapies into the hands of patients. 

This past November, patient advocates, researchers, investors and policy makers gathered in New York City to foster collaboration and advance medical research. Individuals from Cure Alzheimer’s Fund attended, with the goal of making new connections across different sectors and industries, and gaining valuable insights.
