Biotech initiative focused on bringing drug development and manufacturing back to U.S.

Monday is the 60th anniversary of President Kennedy's speech committing to putting a man on the moon, Biden noted in a speech Monday afternoon at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. "President Kennedy set a goal to win the space race against Russia and advance science and technology for all of humanity," he said. "When he set that goal, he established a national purpose that could rally the American people in a common cause. And he succeeded."

"Now in our time, on the 60th anniversary of his clarion call, we face another inflection point," Biden continued. "And together, we can choose to move forward with unity, hope, and optimism. I believe we can usher in the same unwillingness to postpone, the same national purpose that will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills to end cancer as we know it. And even cure cancers once and for all."
