Innovation: Fred Upton’s Committee Pushes for Ideas; Report Looks to 2025

The House Energy and Commerce Committee, led by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., over the past few months has been busy examining a range of topics to assist in the development of new legislation to overhaul federal health programs to foster the development of new technologies and medical breakthroughs. The committee is in the process of examining the development and approval process for new drugs and devices. The effort continues later this week with a hearing on leveraging communications technologies.

Meanwhile, a Thomson Reuters research group recently issued a report examining possible innovative developments by 2025. The analysis used citations in the company’s patent and scientific literature and databases to gauge the likelihood of which major changes will likely take place over the next 10 years. The research report cited four medical advances in its 10 predictions for 2025:

  • Improved detection and prevention of dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Genome engineering makes Type 1 Diabetes preventable
  • Precise drug development makes cancer drugs with few side effects
  • DNA mapping at birth will be the norm

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Bless you!
