Robert Kadlec, MD: Our country is better prepared to repond to health security threats because of Project BioShield. Saving lives in an emergency requires cutting-edge medical countermeasures - medications, vaccines, diagnostics, and more. Under Project BioShield, ASPR/BARDA uses multi-year funding for late-stage development and then can buy these life-saving medical products to protect the American people in public health emergencies.
