About this Event

Join Duke's Office of Licensing & Ventures for a celebration event where leaders from Duke and Deerfield Management come together to commemorate the creation of a major translational research collaboration: Four Points Innovation.

Drinks and hors d'oeuvre served.

BACKGROUND:

This alliance is expected to accelerate the preclinical development of new drugs for improved quality of life and cures for disease.

By way of a newly launched company, Four Points Innovation, up to $130 million of initial funding will be made available by Deerfield to back the initiative for 10 years.

Deerfield also will provide development expertise in support of Duke’s innovative drug research across a span of high-need therapeutic areas, as well as those targeting patients who suffer from hard-to-treat and rare diseases.

During this celebration event, you’ll hear from Mary Klotman, Dean of Duke's School of Medicine and Gene Washington, Chancellor for Health Affairs, Duke University, President and CEO, DUHS, as well as from members of the Deerfield Management team.
