The letter delivered to Chairmen and Ranking Members of both the House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, highlighted that such funding would help advance medical breakthroughs, move high need medical cures through the development pipeline faster and better connect expertise from the public and private sectors in a spirit of cooperation and pre-competitive transparency.
