Cambridge Forum is pleased to welcome medical researchers DR. VINCENT TUOHY and DR. BEATRIZ POGO.

Two noted cancer researchers,Dr. Vincent Tuohy of the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Beatriz Pogo of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, discuss the torturous path that a medical treatment or procedure or device takes from the scientist’s imagination to clinical implementation with actual human patients. Dr. Kathleen Ruddy and Dr. Sasha Helper address the impact that hurdles and delays in the long process have on both attending physicians and their patients. What are the steps in developing and perfecting cancer treatments? What are the steps in the approval process for new treatments? Why does the American medical system focus on treatment rather than prevention of cancer? How can this predisposition be altered?
