The 21st Century Cures Act was recently approved by the House 51-0. Next Stop: U.S. Senate
This is a major step in advancing the translation of basic science to clinical applications, with implications for aging R&D.
Selections from the web page:
If we want to save more lives and keep this country the leader in medical innovation, we have to make sure there’s not a major gap between the science of cures and the way we regulate these therapies.
. . . for the first time ever, we in Congress have taken a comprehensive look at what steps we can take to accelerate the pace of cures in America. We have looked at the full arc of this process – from the discovery of clues in basic science, to streamlining the drug and device development process, to unleashing the power of digital medicine and social media at the treatment delivery phase.
