Congrats to US Rep Diana DeGette for Driving 21st Century Cures into Law!
December 14, 2016
Congratulations to US Rep Diana DeGette for leading the charge on 21st Century Cures, which President Obama signed into law today. Members of the DPharm 2014 faculty and I met with Diana to provide industry feedback. The bill contains provisions to fund a handful of high-profile NIH initiatives, creates an approval pathway for antibiotics targeting drug-resistant and emerging infections, establishes a framework for FDA to use real-world evidence for some regulatory decisions, and provides a legal foundation for the agency’s patient-focused drug development initiative.

Diana spoke at the 2014 DPharm conference where she unveiled the vision for 21st Century Cures initiative. Many congratulations to her again for her tremendous leadership in driving this accomplishment.
