CURE - Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy It's Time We Found a CURE CURE Epilepsy Research

WASHINGTON, D.C.— The current pace of bringing new treatments and therapies to the market is too slow. CURE signed a letter to US Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA), each serving on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, thanking them for their continued efforts through the Innovations Initiative, which includes advocating for more funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Senators Alexander and Murray’s goal is to find a solution for speeding up the process of bringing medical devices, drugs and treatments from lab discovery to the medicine cabinet. “Today, discoveries supported by NIH often do not come to FDA’s door for six, eight, ten, or even twelve years,” said Alexander in a press release when the initiative was announced last year. “For the millions of people with epilepsy, this pace is unacceptable. Increased federal funding and support would significantly accelerate progress in epilepsy research.”
