Hillary Clinton endorsed the Obama administration’s cancer moonshot initiative on [August 15] and pledged to continue its work if she is elected president.

“As president, I will take up the charge. My administration will carry out the mission the Vice President has set,” Clinton [stated]…“Together, we will seize this moment. Together, we will make cancer as we know it a disease of the past.”

She also hinted…that Biden could remain involved. “If I’m elected president this fall, I’m going to ask Joe to continue the important work he’s begun and help us fight and defeat cancer,” Clinton said.

[T]he Democratic nominee urged Congress to approve the White House’s billion-dollar funding request for the moonshot and promised to continue the work to encourage cooperation among cancer researchers…She praised the “unprecedented collaboration” between federal agencies, industry, and researchers that she said Biden had fostered.

One lobbyist [stated]…that the biomedical industry and cancer researchers still needed to be convinced “that it’s not window dressing, that it’s a real attempt to make meaningful changes…”
