FDA Funding Proposal Includes Cross-Cutting Oncology Focus, Disappoints Budget Advocates

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

President Obama sent Congress a budget that would increase FDA's coffers by $360 million, but mostly from user fees. Advocacy groups say the proposal is insufficient considering the agency's growing responsibilities. Included in the request is money for a new Oncology Center of Excellence that would take a cross-agency effort to support development of combination therapies for cancer.
