Just this past month, Partners HealthCare CEO David Torchiana, MD, and Dr. Jeffrey Leiden, the chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Vertex Pharmaceuticals, co-authored a Boston Globe op-ed reiterating the vital importance of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding to the local biomedical community.
