U.S. INVESTMENTS IN MEDICAL AND HEALTH RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

new report from Research!America shows total U.S. investment in medical and health R&D grew by 11.1% from 2019 to 2020, reaching $245.1 billion, led by private sector and the federal government. Even with the one-time infusion of federal funding in 2020 to address COVID-19, our nation spent less than 6 cents of every health care dollar on R&D. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of public and private sectors working individually and in partnership to rapidly translate decades of scientific discovery into safe and effective vaccines and treatments.
