On December 7, the Senate voted 94-5 to approve the 21st Century Cures Act bill.  The bill seeks to expedite the process of getting new drugs and medical devices to the marketplace and provides funding for biomedical research, including nearly $5 billion over the next 10 years for three NIH programs: Cancer Moonshot, BRAIN Initiative and Precision Medicine Initiative.  Also included in the bill is funding to fight the opioid crisis and to reform to the country’s mental health care system. The legislation now heads to the President’s desk; it is expected that he will sign the bill into law.
