Equitable Breakthroughs in Medicine Development will get more underrepresented patients involved in the R&D of medical treatments.

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America is funding a clinical trial initiative to enhance diversity, which has been lacking in the development of new drugs.

PhRMA is collaborating on the Equitable Breakthroughs in Medicine Development with the Yale School of Medicine, Morehouse School of Medicine, the Research Centers in Minority Institutions Coordinating Center at Morehouse School of Medicine and Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
