Open Science for Children’s Health

M4K Pharma is using open science to revolutionize how affordable new treatments are discovered and developed. Through our Medicines4Kids program, we are aggregating and aligning the work of global academics, foundations and pharma/biotech researchers to advance new cures for childhood diseases not well served by current business models.

M4K Pharma’s first program is the discovery, development and commercialization of an ALK2 enzyme inhibitor which will provide the first therapeutic developed specifically for the treatment of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).

M4K Pharma’s Data:
In line with M4K Pharma’s open science principles, we are committed to sharing our research data freely in the public domain. Our data is currently available for public viewing in the video recordings of our monthly open scientific updates, which are posted to our Blog and also available through our YouTube Channel. Data will be openly available in a downloadable format soon.

There are many others doing drug development differently, using open science to collaborate and share knowledge and to develop new medicines and vaccines free of patents and guided by principles of access/affordability. Many right here in Canada like @thesgconline and @M4KPharma
