Hope Funds for Cancer Research held the fourth in a series of panel discussions on innovative cancer research and treatment on May 7th at the Harold Pratt House in New York City. The provocative discussion was for the lay public and featured some of the world’s leaders in treatment and research. 


Four panelists, moderated by NBC chief science correspondent Robert Bazell, addressed the challenges and opportunities for scientists, physicians, and patients to impact revolutionary treatments for patients. The panelists were Dr. Joan Massagué, principal investigator in cell biology, Dr. Larry Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs, Dr. Malcolm A.S. Moore a pancreatic cancer survivor and principal investigator in cell biology – all at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Dr. Frank Slack associate professor at Yale University. 


The event was co-chaired by Leah Rush Cann, Melissa Eisenstat and John E. Parks and raised funds to support a researcher for a year.
