The National Pediatric Research Network Act of 2013 (H.R. 225) Passes The House!

“House Overwhelmingly Approves Bipartisan Committee Legislation to Support Pediatric Health Care.”

WATCH: Chairman Fred Upton on the House floor. He mentions meeting with our family and our little princesses, “Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.” We are so thankful for his support!

The bipartisan National Pediatric Research Network Act (H.R. 225), authored by Reps. Lois Capps (D-CA) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), would allow NIH to fund pediatric research networks comprised of a consortia of institutions that will cooperate in conducting research on conditions and diseases, such as Spinal Muscular Atrophy, affecting children. H.R. 225 was approved by a vote of 375 to 27.
