  • FasterCures is a non-profit organization focused on identifying and implementing global solutions to drive a faster and more efficient process for drug discovery and the clinical development of new therapies for the treatment of deadly and debilitating diseases.
  • This Challenge was posted in InnoCentive's Global Health Pavilion, a section of the Web site that focuses on Challenges that contribute to finding treatments and cures for some of the world's major diseases. It was also posted on the Public Policy and Citizens in Action Pavilion, which contains Challenges that seek creative approaches to current civic and political issues, from local community Challenges to those with far-reaching global impact.
  • Most recently, InnoCentive worked with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) to post a Challenge in this Pavilion seeking new approaches to AIDS vaccine design. The Challenge, with a $150,000 reward is currently accepting submissions through mid-April.
  • Quotes:

    Dwayne Spradlin, CEO of InnoCentive, Inc.

It is also rewarding to our Solvers who enjoy the opportunity to apply their expertise to make a difference."
