WASHINGTON, June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --

    WHAT:  United States leadership in medical innovation is at risk.
           A recent study found that the U.S. currently ranks sixth
           among 40 countries and regions in innovation and
           competitiveness, and it placed last in terms of progress
           made over the last decade.  The Best & Brightest Forum on
           Medical Innovation: Achieving Recovery through Discovery is
           bringing together leading policymakers, academic scholars,
           researchers, patient advocates, biotechnology industry
           representatives and other stakeholders for in-depth
           discussions on topics including:  Why medical innovation is
           a key to economic recovery; why new policies are needed to
           stimulate medical innovation and cure cancer and other
           life-threatening diseases; and why advocating for U.S.
           leadership in medical innovation in today's political
           landscape is so important.
