Investing in a Cure for Cancer
StartUp Health’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Howard Krein, spoke with Institutional Investor Associate Editor Kaitlin Ugolik on the state of immunotherapy and why investing in new treatments will help in the fight against cancer.
“We’re finally at a point where there’s enough understanding of the technology, and understanding of genomics, to say why some people get cancer and some don’t, and what it is about the body that has changed that is allowing this cancer to take place. We haven’t even scratched the surface of what immunotherapy can do for chronic disease. It’s a huge opportunity for development over the next few years.”
