Fostering Collaborations at Scripps Research

Dr. Nahle participated in a private scientific symposium hosted by Scripps Research on February 20, 2019:  The Spectrum: Accelerating Translation of Discoveries to Medicine. The goal of the event was to bring together thought leaders from research institutes, pharma, foundations, and other philanthropic organizations to discuss new ways to support biomedical research and bridge basic science and translational research.  

This day-long symposium (https://www.scripps.edu/thespectrum/) featured keynote talks by Peter Schultz, PhD (President and CEO of Scripps Research), Eric Topol (Executive VP, Scripps Research), and Trevor Mundel (President, Global Health Division, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation). Panelists included Kathryn Richmond (Director, The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group), Maria Millan (President and CEO, CIRM), Ilan Zipkin (VP Business Development, Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy), and Tetsu Maruyama (CSO, Dementia Discovery Fund).

Scripps Research PIs gave a series of scientific talks covering research and drug discovery programs in neurodegenerative, neglected and infectious, cardiometabolic, and inflammatory disease, as well as regenerative medicine and oncology – This robust programming covered a variety of hot topics in the field, including regenerative medicine in Osteoarthritis and a promising new development (KA34, a small molecule therapeutic candidate) now in clinical trials. We will bring full updates on this potential breakthrough in Osteoarthritis in future issues.

The Arthritis National Research Foundation's mission is to provide initial research funding to brilliant, investigative scientists with new ideas to cure arthritis and related autoimmune diseases. Writing articles about the patients affected and the science being done to find a cure shows why we need to come together to #CureArthritis!
