The National Pharmaceutical Council (NPC) is a health policy research organization dedicated to the advancement of good evidence and science, and to fostering an environment in the United States that supports medical innovation. Founded in 1953 and supported by the nation’s major research-based pharmaceutical companies, NPC focuses on research development and dissemination, and education on the critical issues of evidence, innovation and the value of medicines for patients.

NPC’s recent research has focused on many of the issues related to comparative effectiveness research (CER)—harmonization of research methods, communication and dissemination of information to end users, and application of CER for use in decision making—and building toward an  optimal future for CER. NPC also has undertaken studies to enhance the recognition of the value medicines contribute to improving overall health, productivity, and quality of life.

All of NPC’s research projects can be found under the “Research” tab on NPC’s website,

The National Pharmaceutical Council’s leadership and staff bring a variety of experience from within the biopharmaceutical industry, government, health and regulatory agencies, academia and advocacy groups to our work.
