Beach, executive director for hematology/oncology clinical research and development at Celgene; Christopher Loss, veterinary medical officer with the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine; and Bruce Thomsen, senior staff veterinarian with the USDA's Center for Veterinary Biologics.
This event is a wonderful local opportunity to learn more about advancing research from the "bench to the bedside," presented by renowned leaders in their fields. Speakers will discuss the roles of academia, industry and government in the process of drug and biologic development, and the valuable contribution and impact our companion animals can have as natural models of disease.
