National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health has launched what might be its biggest public-private research consortium ever. It brings 10 major drug companies together with NIH scientists to study Alzheimer's, lupus, diabetes and other confounding diseases.
The agency asks the drug makers to put aside the competition over the next five years as they look at the biology behind the illnesses. NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins has more.
Petrillo & Powell
A new rule in the Defense acquisition regulation puts contractors on notice. They've got to be able to certify that the parts they use to build equipment sold to the government are the real McCoy, not fakes. Otherwise, the consequences could be serious. Attorney Joe Petrillo of Petrillo & Powell has more.
Federal News Radio
