Innovation Classroom: Counterfeit Medicines and the Importance of Patient Health and Safety during COVID-19
Innovation Classroom session sponsored by Pfizer.
The popularity of shopping online for medicines is growing quickly due to its convenience as well as the current guidance from health authorities for the public to maintain social distance to keep themselves and vulnerable populations safe. While the U.S. has one of the world’s most secure supply chains, there is growing evidence that Americans are increasingly exposed to sources outside of the typical supply chain for medicine. This innovation classroom will provide an overview of counterfeit medicines, how they relate to COVID-19 medicine and vaccines and what can be done about it.Find out more »
Innovation Classroom: The Next Generation of Cancer Therapies: Where We Are and Where We’re Going Next
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)T-cell therapy is a cutting-edge cell therapy in which a patient’s own cells are removed, genetically modified, and infused back into the patient to fight their blood cancer. At this session, a researcher from Kite, a Gilead Company, will discuss what CAR T and cell therapy is, how it works, its clinical impact on certain cancer patients today, and the possible reach of its benefit on more patients in the near future.
Unfortunately, cancer impacts us all – individuals, families, economies and health systems in the U.S. and around the globe. During this session, Dr. Rossi will bring the impact of cell therapy to life, raise awareness and education around its transformative science, and show the impact it is having on the lives of cancer patients. State policymakers will gain an understanding of emerging therapies that will be available to their constituencies as we push the boundaries of what is possible in cancer care.Find out more »
