January 2017 -Understanding 21st Century Cures for Drugs and Devices

This month we’ll discuss the 21st Century Cures Act – a $6.3 billion, nearly 1,000-page, comprehensive legislation package that passed the U.S. House and Senate in late December 2016. 21st Century Cures overhauls the way drugs and devices will be coming to market; the legislation offers grant funding to states to help fight the opioid epidemic and addresses mental health laws and resources. It also places a big emphasis on research funding – especially for cancer and neurodegenerative diseases – and patient rights. All of these factors are expected to change the research-to-commercialization pathway. Please join us as we learn more about the act and its impact on patients, regulators, and large and small companies.
