Speed Treatments to patients
Researchers, funders, clinicians and others harnessing the power of repurposing research
More than 7,000 diseases have no fully effective treatment, affecting more than 500 million people worldwide. Thousands of existing drugs and devices have the potential to be repurposed to treat patients waiting for a cure. The CureAccelerator community has the ability to make that happen. Get started, or learn more about repurposing.
The CureAccelerator platform was built with a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

World’s First Online, Interactive Platform For Repurposing Research
CureAccelerator supports “proof of concept” research repurposing drugs, devices and nutriceuticals already approved for human use. On CureAccelerator, funders have direct access to repurposing research, researchers can post ideas and connect with peers and funding, and clinicians can contribute their experience of off-label use in need of validation. Using expertise, resources and dollars on hand, CureAccelerator is here so that we can all quickly and affordably answer the question “will this help patients?”
“CureAccelerator is a great opportunity to improve patients' lives. I know that when I connect with like-minded people, together we can accelerate and enhance the impact of repurposing research.” Gauthier Bouche, Medical Director AntiCancer Fund
