Who really owns publicly-funded medical research?

Press Briefing @ 11:30 AM (ET) Thursday, November 11, 2004

This year, an unprecedented coalition of U.S. public interest leaders urged the National Institutes of Health to ensure that peer-reviewed articles on taxpayer-funded research at NIH become fully accessible and available on line at no extra cost to the American public.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is now looking deeply at taxpayer access. On September 3, 2004, they published a proposal, Enhanced Public Access to NIH Research Information, NOT-OD-04-064, in their online Guide for Grants and Contracts, that makes NIH research available online, within six months of publication, for no extra charge to the American public. The NIH proposal is found at http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-04-064.html

Patient advocates and public interest groups are increasingly concerned that their voices are being left out of this critical dialogue between government and giant publishing interests at the sacrifice of legitimate citizen input, public health priorities and the urgency to advance the discoveries of biomedical research. This briefing will highlight the stories, concerns and needs of patient advocates and public interest groups in this important science dialogue.
