Pro Bono

Pro Bono

Background

Given our exclusive focus in healthcare, we also feel proud in playing our part in helping to advance innovative medicines through clinical and commercial development. We felt we had reached a point where can make more tangible contributions in giving back to the community.

Beyond financial contributions, we feel the most effective way we can give back is 'to do what we do best', which is to contribute our time and services to organizations that are playing an active role in helping people who suffer from various healthcare conditions.

History

The pro bono arm of our business was started in 2016 and focuses on establishing partnerships with non-profit organizations who can benefit from our services.

We have successfully completed 3 pro-bono engagements to date and have established a pro-bono steering committee that is focused on establishing connections to various non-profit organizations for which we can support and provide our consultative services in the future.

Our First Pro-Bono Engagement

Our first pro-bono engagement was with a non- profit organization called Solving Kids’ Cancer, which focuses on advancing research and product development in pediatric oncology.

Solving Kids’ Cancer focuses on aggressive childhood cancers with low survival rates. Over the past eight years, SKC has brought over 20 promising drugs into clinical trials that might not have otherwise been fast tracked.

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

We are now looking to expand our pro-bono efforts and have recently established connections with other non-profits such as the Parkinson’s Foundation and Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
