While Cures Within Reach is disease-agnostic and geography-agnostic, some of our funding partners have strategic interests in specific geographic regions. Therefore, in addition to our disease-specific repurposing communities, we work to increase the repurposing research focused on improving the quality and length of life within the Mid-Atlantic region through the speed and cost-effectiveness of medical repurposing.
Our events and research within the the Mid-Atlantic Repurposing Community all focus on connecting our many stakeholder groups together in our shared goal: driving more treatments to more patients more quickly through repurposing.
