2020 Conference Sessions


Welcome & Keynote:Personal Journey - Multiple Myeloma

Dr. Tony Blau
All4Cure

“A cancer patient’s war on cancer.”  1.6 million patients in the US are treated for cancer each year, they respond or they don’t, but collectively we learn almost nothing from their experiences.  Dr. Tony Blau started All4Cure to capture this lost information after a 30 year career as a professor and researcher at the University of Washington, and after developing a treatable but incurable form of blood cancer called multiple myeloma.
