BIAA Urges Cosponsorship of the National Neurotechnology Initiative Act


On April 22, 2009, BIAA circulated an action alert targeting House Members to cosponsor the National Neurotechnology Initiative Act of 2009 (HR 1483). The bill would promote discoveries and accelerate the development of new and safer treatments for brain-related illness, injury and disease.

The action alert message also details the need to initiate much-needed coordination among federal agencies with respect to research, while adding efficiency in the regulatory approval processes that would shorten development times and lead to more and better treatments for TBI and other neurological conditions.
