How to Overcome the Funding Gap for Biotech Start-Ups

At Biotech Week Boston, we sat down with Tyler Merkeley, Health Scientist, Head of Special Projects & Portfolio Management at BARDA for an exclusive interview. He was also a panelist on the discussion on “How to Overcome the Funding Gap for Biotech Start-ups and Emerging Companies“.

The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) is a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services office responsible for procurement and development of countermeasures principally against bioterrorism, but also including chemical, nuclear and radiological threats. Naturally, they are responsible for a national preparedness for pandemic and emerging threats.

Getting funding is one of the most stressful and time-consuming parts of any researcher’s job. At last year’s Cell Therapy Bioprocessing & Commercialization conference, Brock Reeve, executive director of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, gave the audience some advice on funding early stage science. He explained that because of uncertainty in financial markets, venture capitalists and other financially motivated investors have moved away from cell therapy, leaving a gap in funding. But this gap is being filled by venture philanthropy organizations who are moving things from the academic world into the commercial market.

This eBook offers a list of potential organizations who may be able to help fund your cell therapy research. It is by no means exhaustive, but hopefully it will make searching through the hundreds of pages of information out there a little bit easier, so you can get to the important stuff, like advancements in research, drug development, treatment, and potential cures.
