“In the way that JFK took us to the moon, this Administration has the opportunity to complete its own moonshot moment: A personalized and revolutionized healthcare system – completely changed for the rest of time, with electronically connected consumers receiving the right care at the right time and the right place. With the advent of next generation genomic sequencing and precision immunotherapies, the exciting possibility of bringing 21st century precision medicine to patients today is very real. Imagine the possibility of creating patient-specific cancer vaccines that can treat and prevent the recurrence of cancer.” – Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong
The Cancer Moonshot 2020 program is a historic program launched in the USA with strong support from Vice President Joe Biden. This initiative aims to explore a new paradigm in cancer care by initiating a whole range of clinical trials taking advantage of the latest developments in immune based cancer therapies. On October 6 2015 Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong met with Vice President Joe Biden and his staff at the White House and shared a white paper titled: ‘Precision Medicine Against Cancer: The Path to Transform Our Healthcare System through N=1’.
