We met Dr. AJ Joshi, Chief Medical Officer at Atara Biotherapeutics, at ECTRMS 2019, when he gave us our first update on ATA 188, Atara's investigational cell therapy for MS.
This is the third year in a row that we've connected with Dr. Joshi during ECTRIMS for an update on the progress of ATA 188. This year, he's also sharing news about an unexpected discovery that investigators encountered during their Phase 1 clinical trial (HINT: It's a pretty interesting discovery!)
We'll get an advocacy update from Bari Talente, the National MS Society's Executive Vice-President of Advocacy and Healthcare Access as we discuss the benefits that the Build Back Better Act could deliver to people affected by MS.
November is National Caregivers Month and, in today's episode, we'll also meet Monica and Stan Wilson, a couple who are amazing examples of how teamwork can overcome some of the challenges of life with MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
