New York, NY –– November 21, 2016 -- The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation was proud to participate in the Milken Institute’s annual Partnering for Cures Conference at The Grand Hyatt New York, held November 3-18, 2016. www.milkeninstitute.org, www.partneringforcures.org
Partnering for Cures connects hundreds of decision-makers from across the medical research system who are motivated by the same mission: to reduce the time and cost of getting new therapies from discovery to patients.
The annual conference encourages and motivates its participants to forge actual partnerships with one another to further their commitments in the field. This year, Cara Familet, Foundation Director, represented The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation at the Conference. Ms. Familet expressed the Foundation’s intention to dedicate a bulk of the Foundation’s 2016 commitment to The Milken Institute specifically to FasterCures, conveying that message to both Michael Milken, Chairman, Milken Institute and Founder, FasterCures and to Margaret Anderson, Executive Director, FasterCures.
