Advocacy at a Glance

June 27, 2014

Advocacy at a Glance offers you the bullet point summary of current advocacy issues associated with the goals of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA.

  • House and Senate Floor Action on Ag/House Appropriations? To the best of our knowledge, neither committee-passed bill has been scheduled for floor time. However, the general expectation is that they will be considered by both bodies in June, conferenced in July (or sooner), with final passage before the August recess.
  • FDA Putting Dollars into Regulatory Science. On May 22, the FDA announced that it intends to provide up to $38 million over 5 years for the Duke University Translational Medicine Initiative. Most of the funding will support the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI), which is designed to increase the quality and efficiency of clinical trials. In a separate and unrelated announcement, the FDA issued its funding priorities and solicited proposals for regulatory science projects that it will fund in FY 15, assuming adequate funds are available.
