 Speech before Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Biomedical Innovation
Now that we are well into the Information Age, now that modern information technology has had a fundamental impact on so many parts of our lives, there is no good reason we cannot have a fundamentally better system for helping to protect consumers and assure the safe and effective use of new drugs.
Information technology has changed the every sector of our economy, whether it is sophisticated systems for relaying banking information across international markets, or the digital scanner at the local drug store that both speeds you through the check-out line and permits the store to adjust its inventories.
So I am delighted to be here at MIT, as they unveil today their own efforts to pursue some of those approaches, and at FDA we look forward to developing similar partnerships to advance our tools for learning about how new medicines can be more effectively used to improve public health.
