ACCELERATING CURES

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.

To discover therapies that will significantly improve patient outcomes in 10 years, Mission: Cure will:

Engage experts and innovative thinkers in problem-solving to identify new approaches and scientific advances that could lead to a breakthrough.
Systematically test already-approved pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, including generic drugs.
Aggressively manage and coordinate all efforts toward achieving the agreed-upon patient outcomes.
Use advanced genetic testing and data aggregation tools (precision medicine) to understand causes, target promising therapies, and provide rapid feedback on impact.
Provide funding and incentives to ensure that new therapies in development move through the clinical trial process efficiently.
