On June 14th, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved their version of the Labor/HHS funding legislation which includes language directing the NIH to form a special emphasis panel for PLGAs. This progress is truly a BREAKTHROUGH for scientific research on PLGA.

The NIH’s panel will present results from the panel before the end of the 2013 fiscal year. We are optimistic that their efforts will help further direct research efforts and inspire scientists and medical experts around the country to turn their attention to PLGA and finding more effective treatments and a cure.  Language for the NIH can be seen here.
