Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, and Mike were interviewed by Fox Business Network's Liz Claman about accelerating medical research during FasterCures' Partnering for Cures conference in New York. Mike talked about The March in 1998, and the ensuing doubling of the NIH budget by 2003, and the impact of dramatically reducing the cost of sequencing a human genome from $100 million in 2001 over 13 years to less than $3,000 in a few hours.
