September 21, 2018

Dr. Laura Esserman spoke at the Biden Cancer Summit in the Luncheon Panel: State of Innovation in Cancer Care and Research today.

Luncheon Panel: State of Innovation in Cancer Care and Research

  • Laura Esserman, University of California San Francisco
  • Bibhash Mukhopadhyay, New Enterprise Associates
  • Feng Zhang, Broad Institute
  • Sy Mukherjee, Fortune (Moderator)

Some elected quotes from Dr. Esserman: 

"Care needs to look more like clinical trials and clinical trials need to look more like care. What we are doing today will not get to complete responses. There should be a model we all share and replicate."
“Cancer is not one disease. It is a spectrum of conditions. Earliest intervention in disease treatment is needed when a cure is possible."
"The greatest advance in past two decades is understanding the breadth of the cancer spectrum. The biggest shortcoming is not designing enough clinical trials based on this knowledge."
