Funding Gaps Continue to Spell Opportunity for Those with Capital

RESI Double Panel Announcement: Foundations & CROs
By Tom Crosby, RESI Conference Manager, LSN

A New Model for Foundations: Non-Profit to For-Profit Panel

This new way of investing provides the foundation the ability to reinvest their profits, providing additional capital to fund future research. 

Moderated by David Sandak, Vice President, Research at Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, the audience will hear from:
  • Howard Fillit, Executive Director and Chief Science Officer, Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Fund
  • Benjamin Seckler, Founder and President, Charley's Fund
  • Annette Bakker, President & CSO, Children's Tumor Foundation
  • Keting Chu, VP, Research TAP, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)

Address: 9B Hamilton Place, Boston, MA, 02108, USA
