Over the past few weeks, the Age of Personalized Medicine editorial team has been talking to leaders from the co-convening organizations of the second Turning the Tide Against Cancer Through Sustain Medical Innovation national conference, which will be held on October 9, 2014, in Washington, D.C.
Our conversation with Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), chief executive officer of the American Association for Cancer Research, on the need for continued collaboration across the diverse spectrum of stakeholders in the cancer community, can be viewed below.
We also heard from Edward Abrahams Ph.D., president of the Personalized Medicine Coalition and Marcia A. Kean, M.B.A., chairman of Feinstein Kean Healthcare, on the need for policies that encourage and keep pace with innovation in cancer research and personalized medicine.
