Mission Statement

Cures Within Reach improves patient quality and length of life by leveraging the speed, safety and cost-effectiveness of medical repurposing research, driving more treatments to more patients more quickly. Our focus: funding the projects that, when successful, will catalyze follow-on funding and/or further trials and publications. We focus on impacting patients with unmet medical needs, whether a repurposed treatment may have philanthropic value or commercial value.


We support investigator-initiated repurposing research projects in any unsolved disease including neurology, oncology and rare diseases in pediatrics and adults. We support clinical trial projects from accredited academic and nonprofit research institutions and large group medical practices located anywhere in the world. Our Impact Awards support early-stage companies bringing a repurposed treatment to market.

We take an impact philanthropy approach that prioritizes patient when selecting repurposing research projects. We support both philanthropic projects, which have little or no commercial value but have critical value to patients, as well as commercial projects, which industry may bring to regulatory approval and then to market. Our proof-of-concept funding of repurposing projects allows researchers and clinicians to leverage positive data into follow-on funding.
