week. If you've been considering a career in biomedical research,
the future in innovation looks very bright!
On Dec. 13, President Obama signed a
bill that will significantly help advance innovation in biomedical
research. The bill will spend $6.3 billion on various medical
research initiatives and makes regulatory changes designed to speed
the approval of new drugs and medical devices.
The bill, called the 21st Century Cures Act, has been a hot topic
among news outlets as it will greatly impact and make changes to
our current health care system. This amount of funding is
significant and could mean much more grants and opportunity for
those interested biomedical research.
last blog post, I discussed the already growing field of
biomedical engineering--a career path that will certainly benefit
from the passage of this bill. However, current biomedical science
students could soon benefit, as well. A portion of the bill also
encourages the creation of special initiatives and prizes for young
scientists interested in certain kinds of research.
You too could be part of this shift toward more innovative
healthcare. A great way to get started is with National
science program, which allows students to tailor their degree
to their specific goals and a
variety of career opportunities. For questions or more
