Since 2009, Partnering for Cures has been convening leaders with the experience, creativity, and motivation needed to transform the medical research system.

It is convened annually by FasterCures, a center of the Milken Institute, and connects hundreds of decision-makers from across diseases who are motivated by the same mission – to reduce the time and cost of getting new therapies from discovery to patients. In 2017, FasterCures is taking Partnering for Cures on the road and convening a smaller, cross-sector group of medical research leaders twice – once in Boston and once in San Francisco. Save the date for P4C Boston on July 12, 2017. Registration will open in spring 2017. And stay tuned for the P4C San Francisco date, which will take place in fall 2017.
