H.R. 6 – 21st Century Cures Act
The pace of scientific advancement over the past two decades, including the mapping of the human genome, has been impressive, giving us a myriad of genetic clues about the underpinnings of disease. Translating these discoveries into new treatments for patients, however, has proven to be difficult. HR 6 accelerates the discovery, development and delivery of life saving and life improving therapies, and transforms the quest for faster cures by:
• Removing barriers to increased research collaboration.
• Measuring success and identifying diseases earlier through personalized medicine.
