Sen. Ron Wyden's Proposal Will Kill NIH-Pharma Collaboration
When the Federal Technology Transfer Act passed in 1986, it allowed government laboratories like the National Institutes of Health to enter into Cooperative Research and Development Agreements with the pharmaceutical industry. Unfortunately, the collaborations envisioned by the passing of the FTTA were not immediately forthcoming. Now, however, all of that may be coming to an end. U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden has urged the NIH to reexamine its policies to protect the interest of taxpayers.
