WCG Foundation Progress Report, October 31, 2016
WCG Foundation (WCGF) has received $100,000 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to support WCGF’s new Expanded Access Project. The grant targets physicians and institutional review boards (IRBs), who play key roles in helping desperately ill patients gain access to experimental medicines.
Launched in July, the Expanded Access Project seeks to streamline the process for those seeking Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to try investigational drugs and devices. The goal is to make the process less burdensome and more equitable and transparent. Learn more.
