Cures Around the Country | News About 21st Century Cures | News About Health Innovation and Scientific Discovery | Press Releases

Congress is working together on a nonpartisan issue that will have a profound effect on the lives of all Americans. H.R. 6, the 21st Century Cures Act, will bring our health care innovation infrastructure into the 21st Century, delivering hope for patients and loved ones and providing necessary resources to researchers to continue their efforts to uncover the next generation of cures and treatments. 

In the 21st century, health care innovation is happening at lightning speed. From the mapping of the human genome to the rise of personalized medicines that are linked to advances in molecular medicine, we have seen constant breakthroughs that are changing the face of disease treatment, management, and cures. Health research is moving quickly, but the federal drug and device approval apparatus is in many ways the relic of another era. We have dedicated scientists and bold leaders at agencies like the NIH and the FDA, but when our laws don’t keep pace with innovation, we all lose.

The committee has spent more than a year producing and compiling news and information about the 21st Century Cures initiative and the scientific advancements behind it. Following is a detailed listing of materials produced by the committee, op-eds from our members, and news coverage surrounding the promise of health innovation and 21st Century Cures.

The committee is seeking input on this bold new initiative from a wide variety of interested stakeholders.
