PhRMA spotlights the science of hope
PR Newswire, Washington, D.C. (June 13, 2016)
Today, PhRMA is excited to continue spotlighting the Science of Hope by America’s biopharmaceutical industry. This effort includes a new webpage that provides resources on the complexity behind promising scientific advances. It also discusses new and powerful tools to improve and accelerate the development of safe and effective medicines for the 21st century.
Developing new medicines is a challenging undertaking, and the science is only getting harder. As our understanding of science grows, so does the complexity of developing new medicines, particularly as treatments are increasingly becoming personalized to individual patients. Yet through it all, America’s biopharmaceutical researchers and scientists are tireless in their pursuit of new treatments and cures for patients.
Within the new webpage, you will find the following information:
- Scientific Advances: Explore the progress the biopharmaceutical industry has made in medical research and development.
- In the Pipeline: Learn about promising new medicines in development.
- People Behind the Science: Find out more about the men and women dedicated to bringing new treatments and cures to patients.
- Glossary of Terms: Look up definitions for commonly-used terms related to medical research and biopharmaceutical innovation.
The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) represents the country’s leading innovative biopharmaceutical research companies, which are devoted to discovering and developing medicines that enable patients to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives. Since 2000, PhRMA member companies have invested more than half a trillion dollars in the search for new treatments and cures, including an estimated $58.8 billion in 2015 alone.
