We are a coalition of doctors, researchers, patients, and entrepreneurs pioneering a new approach to curing diseases through innovative outcome-based financing. We collaborate with impact investors and payers to discover life-altering therapies and bring them to patients.

The first disease we are attacking is pancreatitis. The world’s top pancreatic experts believe a well-funded, coordinated research and development program could lead to effective treatments within 10 years. Mission: Cure is working to make that happen. Consulting with pancreatic experts from the nation’s top research and healthcare institutions, we developed a 10-year plan and are working to implement it.

Financing Based On Patient Outcomes

Partnerships With Impact Investors

The time is right to create a new model for curing disease.  Exciting developments in genetics and data are making precision medicine a reality. Healthcare payers are moving toward value-based funding, especially for chronic diseases.  And a new generation of impact investors—seeking to generate social and not just financial returns—have made curing disease a priority.
