“I believe in the transformative power of scientific exploration to win our fight against cancer. Witnessing the impact of cancer within my own family has fueled my determination to contribute to the discovery of effective treatments and help our patients. My role is to leverage every available resource to enhance and accelerate scientific discovery and progress toward better cancer care.”
