Project BioShield: Revolutionizing 21st Century Medical Countermeasures - Alternative Description for Time-Based Media

The following is a text alternative description for the Project BioShield: Revolutionizing 21st Century Medical Countermeasures.

[The video begins with BARDA Director Rick Bright, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response - U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, explaining how Project BioShield is revolutionizing the way we create public-private partnerships to develop medical countermeasures that protect Americans from 21st century health security threats.]

Rick Bright, PhD: Project BioShield has revolutionized the way we protect Americans from 21st century health security threats. And our industry partners are a critical component of our success.  BARDA's approach to public-private partnerships is remarkable. We reduce business risk.  We provide cost-sharing without taking equity in the company. And, we offer technical expertise from our deeply experienced staff within BARDA.  But, Project BioShield isn't just a funding mechanism. It's a commitment to Americans and a commitment to our industry partners as well. Together, we're creating a secure marketplace for lifesaving medicines. Together, under Project BioShield, we're seeing success in developing solutions that otherwise would not exist.

[The video ends.]
