Despite Congressional skepticism for Collins' plan to scrap NCRR in favor of a new translational Center:
Today, for example, my administration is announcing a new center that will help companies reduce the time and cost of developing lifesaving drugs. When scientists and researchers at the National Institutes of Health discover a new cure or breakthrough, we’re going to make it easier for startup companies to sell those products to the people who need them. We got more than 100 universities and companies to agree that they’ll work together to bring more inventions to market as fast as possible. And we’re also developing a strategy to create jobs in biotechnology, which has tremendous promise for health, clean energy and the environment.
I think that means this ship has sailed beyond the point of recalling, folks. Get used to it.
