- Excerpt from E&C continues to push for bipartisan efforts to improve drug pipeline:

This week, the House Energy and Commerce health subcommittee continues an effort launched in May to find potential common ground that legislators can coalesce around to improve the drug pipeline from discovery to development to delivery. On Wednesday, July 9th, the panel will examine opportunities to modernize clinical trials and accelerate the development of new cures and treatments. On Friday, July 11, the committee will solicit feedback from patients on how to expedite the drug discovery, development, and delivery process.
