In a letter to Senators Brown and Wicker (PDF), PPMD officially endorsed the National Pediatric Research Network Act legislation that seeks to accelerate the development of new treatments and therapies to combat devastating childhood diseases through a greater investment in basic, translational, and clinical research. The National Pediatric Research Network Act will strengthen and expand pediatric research conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by establishing national Pediatric Research Consortia (PRCs). This legislation is critical for advancing children's health because it will strengthen the federal investment in pediatric research by authorizing adequate funding for infrastructure and core services needed to support pediatric translational and clinical research for diseases like Duchenne.
