PhRMA Comments to the Office of Science and Technology Policy Regarding Clinical Research Infrastructure and Emergency Clinical Trials

The White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) recently solicited stakeholder feedback on the clinical research infrastructure for emergency clinical trials, for which PhRMA submitted comments. PhRMA shares OSTP's recognition of the importance of having a clinical trial infrastructure that supports sites that are ready to respond to emergency situations like COVID-19. We also agree that one goal of such an infrastructure should be to support the expansion of clinical research into underserved communities by increasing diversity among both trial participants and clinical trial investigators.
