Dear colleagues and friends,
n this month’s issue of Discoveries, we share how the research of Dr.
José Luis Millán
has led to a clinical trial for a new drug to treat calcification disorders. Dr. Millán, professor at SBP's Human Genetics Program, is our longest-tenured scientist, having joined the organization as a trainee in 1977. We are very proud of this significant achievement that was reached through a collaboration with the pharmaceutical company Daiichi Sankyo.
Other noteworthy events include recent publications on improved cancer imaging, new approaches to evaluate cancer drugs, heart cell development and a Career Development Award to Dr. Cosimo Commisso from the Department of Defense.
We hope you enjoy this issue,
Kristiina Vuori, M.D., Ph.D.
