Alternative Text for Time-Based Media

The following is a text alternative description for the BARDA Ventures: Sandeep Patel video.

[The video features Dr. Sandeep Patel, Director - Division of Research, Innovation, and Ventures (DRIVe), introducing BARDA Ventures. DRIVe is a division of the Biomedical Advanced R&D Authority (BARDA) under the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.]

Sandeep Patel, PhD.:  BARDA Ventures expands the range of investment tools that BARDA has available to advance novel medical countermeasure development, by using, for the first time in HHS, ASPR, and BARDA, the tools that the venture capital community uses. BARDA Ventures will help the technologies we know are critical to public health emergency preparedness and response, find a path towards commercialization, and at the same time, invite matching investments from the private investment community. We’ve partnered with the Global Health Investment Corporation, a non-profit with an extensive track record of successfully bringing new global health products to market through venture capital partnerships with a focus on investing for impact.

[The video ends with Department of Health and Human Services logo and disclaimer "Produced at U.S. taxpayer expense".]
