Translational Capabilities: Open drug development (Milestone 4.W)

Enable open drug development to generate innovative new medicines that are priced fairly for all.


Success Criteria

  • Establish a publicly-funded program that enables drug development to be carried out entirely in the public domain.
  • Allow for longer regulatory data protection for approved drugs that would require:
    • Sharing of all data including negative ones, as well as materials and tools;
    • No patents that would prevent anyone else manufacturing and selling the product;
    • Reasonable price cap.
