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.
Below is a listing of the current organizations that are a part of TRAIN. To learn more about becoming a TRAIN organization, visit our Application page.
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.
