The Lancet Examines Congressional Support For U.S. Cures Act, Potential For Funding

The Lancet: Experts confident of Congressional funding for U.S. Cures Act
“Just five weeks before his presidency ended, Barack Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act, a law that will sustain several of his signature biomedical research initiatives, streamline the U.S. drug and medical device approval process, improve the nation’s mental health care system, and combat the country’s opioid misuse epidemic. The legislation won nearly unanimous approval in both houses of Congress … But the funding to implement the law is not guaranteed…” (Jaffe, 1/14).
