FasterCures, a Center of the Milken Institute, applauds the nomination of Monica Bertagnolli, MD, as director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH is vital for the development of transformative and life-saving science for people across the US and around the globe. The last three years have demonstrated to the world the critical importance of medical innovations and the importance of collaboration in making rapid progress. Dr. Bertagnolli is perfectly situated to bring the innovations she helped pioneer in the oncology space to the broader ecosystem. If confirmed, we look forward to working with her to improve the R&D environment, increase patient engagement, advance innovative treatments, and speed their delivery to all patients.
