Cancer research funding—Navigating a competitive environment
Cancer is the number one cause of deaths in the world, expected to rise above 23 million a year by 2030.
Developing effective cancer treatment is a risky endeavour requiring extensive financial means, collaboration and the infrastructure to support the development of drugs and other therapies and detection devices. The outcome, however, will often be uncertain and risky financially.
These issues are compounded by the competitive fundraising environment within which these organisations operate. Discussed will be the ways these challenges are addressed including managing the difficult balance between a charitable and corporate mind-set and the need to compete for funds. Cancer research and the development of drugs is also an investment opportunity.
The panel will explore innovations, opportunities and risks; and how the most promising scientific discoveries are translated into urgently needed new treatments, diagnostics and technologies for patients with cancer.
New strategies for innovative funding and cooperative models between actors as well as how professional advisers could navigate these to provide excellent advice to their clients interested in this area of funding will be considered.
