FDA culture change, NIH investments spark drugmaker innovation

FasterCures SmartBrief | Mar 26, 2015

Investors and drugmakers are more optimistic as the FDA approves more drugs more quickly than in the recent past. The FDA has undergone a cultural shift and sees itself as "a catalyst for innovation," said FasterCures fellow and InnoThink Center for Research in Biomedical Innovation founder Bernard Munos. In addition to new FDA policies and advances in gene sequencing technology, NIH investments in basic research have boosted innovation, says Brookings Institution fellow Gregory Daniel.
