United States House of Representatives
Chairman Fred Upton
MichBio and Biotechnology CEOs: “We applaud Chairman Upton for undertaking this initiative because it is imperative that we find new solutions.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – It was another successful week for the Energy Commerce Committee’s 21st Century Cures initiative, as the effort made stops in Michigan and North Carolina. Distinguished guests and thought leaders in the public health sector discussed ways to accelerate the pace of cures in America with Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), and Rep. Michael C. Burgess, MD (R-TX). Since the committee first launched the 21st Century Cures effort earlier this year, support for the cause has grown rapidly. Stephen Rapundalo, president and CEO of MichBio, and James C. Greenwood, president and CEO of Biotechnology Industry Organization, praised the effort this week in the Kalamazoo Gazette, writing, “We applaud Chairman Upton for undertaking this initiative because it is imperative that we find new solutions. ... A forward-thinking innovation ecosystem will ensure that patients continue to receive the benefits of new therapies and new cures as we move further into the 21st Century.”
