ViS CEO Dr. Fabio Thiers and BIO President and CEO James C. Greenwood present collaboration at Partnering for Cures conference


On November 4, 2013, in New York, NY, Dr. Thiers and Mr. Greenwood presented the ViS and BIO collaboration on Empowering Pediatric Research, at Faster Cures’ fifth annual Partnering for Cures conference.

Nearly 60% of the disease burden for high-priority conditions, including schizophrenia, depression, malaria, and HIV/Aids, is borne by children, but it remains difficult to find experienced research sites for pediatric research. ViS Research, in partnership with the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) and its member companies, has mapped over 3,000 institutions with pediatric experience, across 84 countries. Together, ViS & BIO are building a pediatric research network that allows research institutions to participate at no cost. The resulting patient demographics, together with ViS' online feasibility and analytics platform, allow drug developers to quickly navigate and evaluate pediatric clinical research infrastructure and initiate trials faster and at a lower cost.



The objectives of the BIO-ViS partnership are to: map the pediatric patient population, identify pediatric research sites, use crowd-sourced standards for site evaluation, and create a live interface with pediatric sites.

Faster Cures, the Washington, DC-based center of the Milken Institute, brings together leaders in Partnering for Cures from all sectors in medical research with the express purpose of making collaboration happen - collaborations that must happen to speed up the time it takes to turn discoveries into treatments and cures.
