Partnering with PhRMA, this year’s BioSummit focused on Research in our own Backyard: Elevating the Science of Clinical Trials.
Our special guest for the summit and the dinner was Suleika Jaouad, an Emmy Award-winning writer, advocate, public speaker and cancer survivor. She is the author of the acclaimed New York Times column “Life, Interrupted” and video series. After three years of chemotherapy, a life-saving clinical trial and a bone marrow transplant, she is now in remission. Suleika gave a personal perspective on modern clinical research.
Sharing their best practices on planning, implementing, overseeing and completing a successful clinical trial was our panel of local experts:
Richard Gammans, PhD – COO, Accele BioPharma (Moderator)
Russell Rother, PhD – Executive VP & COO, Selexys
Robert Mannel, MD – Director, Stephenson Cancer Center
Eliza Chakravarty, MD – Rheumatologist and Associate Member, OMRF
