WHAT WE DO

WE START FROM MATCH
Established medicines with proven track records should be the first thing we reach for on the shelf. Because they’re already on the shelf, ready to be distributed widely and prescribed safely. When we repurpose what we already have, our best efforts prove more effective, acting quickly to ameliorate and mitigate risks while the scientific community begins to search for a solution.
WE EXPLORE THE KNOWN UNIVERSE
For NewFound to find the right medicine in our moment of need, we need to prepare, share, and mobilize the enormous amounts of medical data and research findings produced each year by the world’s non-profit institutions and for-profit companies. We need to support data sharing to reveal valuable insights in trials conducted decades ago. Coordinating a navigable database of this size represents a core goal, a hard task, and a big prize.
WE PARTNER WITH RE:PURPOSE
Pandemic derives from a Greek word meaning ‘of all the people’. The promise of repurposed medicines can only be realised through a global network of trusted partners acting together with real purpose. That’s how we set up channels of communications that are ever ready, develop effective tools and resources, train researchers to look in the right places, and counter the next fast-moving threat with an even faster response. We welcome any research institution, governmental organisation, or pharmaceutical company to join this mission to make our therapeutic responses faster, smarter, and safer.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
NewFound is not a funding agency. We are a collaborative, dedicated to exploring and facilitating therapeutics repurposing efforts among NewFound partners and other groups around the world.
