Thursday, May 26, 2016

Vice President Joseph Biden visited Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) for a roundtable discussion with MSK experts and members of the cancer community. The candid conversation, inspired by the “moonshot” initiative announced by President Obama, was led by Craig Thompson, MD, President and CEO of MSK. MSK’s Carol Brown, MD, Ross Levine, MD, and Robert Sidlow, MD, were also active participants in the discussion.  Earlier this year, President Obama announced a national initiative to improve cancer care and research and appointed Vice President Biden to spearhead the effort. At the roundtable, MSK experts discussed with the Vice President several exciting advances, the biggest opportunities, and the toughest hurdles that remain.
