May 9, 2017, MedTech Insight

Wade Ackerman is quoted by MedTech Insight in an article covering the May 5 Food, Drug and Law Institute's annual meeting in Washington. Ackerman provided his insights on the hiring trajectory for those individuals tasked to implement the 21st Century Cures Act, and noted that the funds can be viewed as having broad applications for hiring. 

Ackerman stated, "As you look at this report...across the Center for Biological Evaluation and Research and the agency, [it] talks about having the authority to hire these expert people in key roles to look at innovative products, and I think that's an important authority."
