Event Description

Dr. Robert A. Kyle, MD, Mayo Clinic

Interview date: August 9, 2013 

On this week's show, Dr. Robert Kyle, a myeloma pioneer, gives a history of "Innovation in Myeloma." With a perspective of the last 60 years of research, he shared how his research began in the 1950s, how common treatments originated, and how treatments have progressed faster in the last few decades. He pointed out experiences where studying the work of others, even in the past, led to innovative conclusions and described situations in which patients helped to drive new treatments in myeloma. He noted the potential future crisis we have in research with a lack of investment in federal funding and described the importance of patients joining clinical trials to move research forward at a faster pace.
