Earlier this week Larry Mantle from KPCC public radio led an interesting discussion of some of the bureaucratic obstacles in translating basic science findings to the clinic.
The guests included:
Sharon Begley, Science Editor, Newsweek, author of “Desperately Seeking Cures”
Francis Collins, M.D., Director, National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Carl H. June, M.D., Director Translational Research Program at the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
