[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.
