FasterCures Rewards Two InnoCentive Solvers for Innovative Ideas to Accelerate Medical Research
Date:3/12/2009

Gregory C. Simon, President of FasterCures

"By participating in the open innovation process, we were able to gain new ideas and insights into a thorny challenge that currently inhibits innovation in biomedical research and slows progress towards medical advancements. We look forward to further developing these proposals and discussing them with other medical research stakeholders. One solution sought to apply a successful process that had been used in other spheres and another carefully addresses some of the challenges of existing public-private partnerships to foster biomarker research. We enjoyed the exercise and feel that it opened our eyes to new ways to address this issue."

Dr. Steve Donoho, InnoCentive Solver

"As biomarkers are such an important part of the medical research process, it was fulfilling to receive the notification that my idea would further support FasterCures in reevaluating the process. Working through InnoCentive on interesting and rewarding Challenges has been very satisfying."

Dr. Susan Levinson, InnoCentive Solver

"Having a broad set of experiences across the value chain of the pharmaceutical industry, as well as completing many problem-solving consultancy projects was key to addressing this Challenge. In addition, I have a passion for seeing the barriers to healthcare innovation reduced, so responding to this Challenge was simply fun! Being part of the solution to a problem like this is its own reward for someone who loves to solve problems."
