TRAIN: The Research Acceleration and Innovation Network

Building Nonprofit Capacity
TRAIN
The Research Acceleration and Innovation Network

What is TRAIN?

Founded in 2005, the Research Acceleration and Innovation Network (TRAIN) is an affinity network of foundations interested in taking a more strategic and entrepreneurial approach—what some refer to as “venture philanthropy”—to their role as funders of medical research. TRAIN convenes dozens of forward-thinking foundations to learn from each other and share their novel solutions with the rest of the medical research system.

Participating Organizations

Mission-driven, results-oriented, and strategic in their use of capital, TRAIN organizations are moving promising therapies from the laboratory bench to the patient's bedside as rapidly as possible.
