"Through Accelerating Cancer Cures, we are ensuring that the best young physician-scientists can continue to be the critical link between the research lab and the patients."

"This event underscores the importance of collaboration between the biopharmaceutical industry and its academic partners, and how these partnerships will ultimately create new cancer treatments for patients."
