The BIO Patient Advocacy Pavilion is a dynamic space centrally located in the BIO Exhibition that provides a forum for BIO attendees to meet with and explore potential collaborations between the biopharmaceutical industry and the nonprofit disease community to expedite the development of new and novel treatments. The Pavilion was created to provide patient advocacy organizations, venture philanthropies, and the biotechnology industry with unique partnering and networking opportunities to advance their shared goal of developing innovative medicines to fight and cure disease and improve the lives of patients.
Connect with venture philanthropy and patient advocacy organizations for unique partnership opportunities to advance your research and drug development agendas.
In addition to raising awareness, developing policy agendas, and advocating on behalf of patients and caregivers, these organizations are also helping to drive the development of new medicines for patients by funding research, developing patient registries, and collecting patient preference information.
*As of March 20, 2019.
