FasterCures, a Centre of the renowned Milken Institute dedicated to accelerating biomedical research and treatments for patients to improve the system for all, announced that AAAMD CEO Wen Hwa Lee is one of five non-profit CEOs to be selected for the inaugural LeadersLink Leadership Development Program. You can read all about LeadersLink, and the other outstanding Foundation CEOs selected for the program, on the FasterCures website, or on Twitter @FasterCures.
Said CEO Lee: "I am excited to announce that I have been selected for the inaugural cohort of the FasterCures LeadersLink Program. LeadersLink is a new capacity-building and mentoring program to enhance the personal development of an emerging cadre of leaders of nonprofit organizations that fund or conduct biomedical research. Participation in this program means I will be making more connections with leading experts across the entire biomedical ecosystem to help better inform our efforts to advance medical research and science that matters most to our patient community. I look forward to working with both FasterCures and outstanding fellow CEOs. I am honored that AAAMD and our strategy to tackle AMD, a chronic and prevalent disease of ageing, have been recognised. I envision this as the beginning of a catalytic collaboration which will accelerate our mission to end sight-loss caused by AMD."
