Our continued investment in drug development, whether through our annual Biotech Investment Awards or through our new Clinical Fund projects with biopharmas like Synta, signify the MMRF's continued commitment to share in the risk of drug development to ensure promising treatments are brought to patients as quickly as possible," said Kathy Giusti, Founder and CEO of the MMRF and MMRC
, and a multiple myeloma patient.
On a day to day basis, he will oversee the majority of the MMRC
