Drug Development Conference

The Cancer Molecular Therapeutics Research Association (CMTRA) annual meeting was held at Stanford University from July 19 -22. This is an interesting intersection of academics and the pharmaceutical industry whereby confidential data presentations allow free and open intellectual exchanges about the science and implementation of drug development and clinical trials. For those interested in molecular therapeutics, this meeting is a true gem. From our lab, Jinu's work on IGF receptor inhibition was very well received.
