Event Details

 Join the Cures Within Reach Young Professionals Board at our signature event on November 15, 2017!


CureAccelerator™ Live! is a live philanthropic pitch competition that gives YOU the chance to find the next breakthrough treatment. 

Watch Principal Investigators from all over the country pitch their clinical trials for repurposing medical treatments, while enjoying appetizers and refreshments. Then, cast your vote to help one winner secure funding for their project.


Medical repurposing, which involves discovering new uses for approved medical treatments, provides the quickest possible transition from bench to bedside.

CureAccelerator™ Live! 2017 will focus on supporting repurposing clinical trials dedicated to improving treatment for unsolved cancers or unmet cancer needs, or repurposing existing cancer treatments in non-cancer diseases.


Hosted at MATTER, conveniently located in downtown Chicago inside the Merchandise Mart, CureAccelerator™ Live! 2017 is a unique networking opportunity for researchers, clinicians, patient groups, biomedical industry professionals and funders. Don’t miss this opportunity to help harness the power of repurposing research and help bring groundbreaking treatments to patients in need!

Cures Within Reach Young Professionals Board

Cures Within Reach  catalyzes repurposing research to quickly and affordably improve patient lives. Repurposing research seeks to create new treatments for serious unmet needs using existing drugs, devices and nutriceuticals. We accomplish this through collaborations that connect researchers and funders, by facilitating crowdsourcing and community, and by identifying alternative financing models and incentives.
