The Harrington Project for Discovery and Development
The Harrington Project for Discovery and Development Implements Multidisciplinary Collaboration for Greater Success
The Harrington Project for Discovery & Development addresses several major challenges facing medicine today through a unique tripartite collaboration leveraging both non-profit and for-profit organizations.
- The Harrington Discovery Institute provides financial and nonfinancial support through programs like The Harrington Scholar-Innovator Grant, Foundation Scholar, and the Harrington Prize to physician-scientists specifically to advance translational research addressing unmet clinical needs.
- The Innovation Support Center provides powerful resources to physician scientists, including drug development infrastructure and financial support, to accelerate development of innovative therapies.
- BioMotiv, a mission-aligned commercial development company, addresses the current pharmaceutical funding gap for early stage development projects through an innovative business model and provides a novel link between academic projects and late stage commercialization partners.
Mission Provides Critical Resources for Physician-Scientists
The Harrington Project’s ambitious scope and mission are designed to address the gaps and failures that have arisen as economic and regulatory environments have changed. Despite breathtaking advances in basic science, the rate of clinical introduction of new therapeutics has declined.
The Harrington Project’s three components offer financial and experiential resources at critical points in the drug development pathway and thus offer physician-scientists, a critical resource to realize their goals and mission.
