The meeting will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include:


  • how federal funding for biomedical research, particularly via NIH, has contributed to new drug development, both directly and indirectly
  • the pricing of drugs that have benefited from federal investments in biomedical science;
  • the role of technology and patent transfer to and from entrepreneurial organizations associated with NIH-funded research
  • potential ways to better track, quantify, and document NIH contributions to innovation in drug development
  • potential strategies and policies to facilitate the translation of federally-funded biomedical research into innovations in drug development and to help ensure that the public has affordable access to those innovative medicines.
