Gates Foundation Issues Biotech Call to Action

Today, Trevor Mundel from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation discussed the untapped potential of biotech companies to help develop new and better drugs, vaccines, diagnostics, and delivery systems for global health solutions at the 2014 BIO International Convention.

This is important because 90 percent of the global infectious disease burden is borne by those who live in developing countries, yet the foundation believes that little attention is paid to health solutions to address these problems.

In this BIO BuzzCenter video interview, Mundel also shared some of the top priority products needed in global health, based on a top 10 list released by the Foundation today.
