           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.
