As a senior physician I can tell you that one of
the saddest things that can happen to you

2
00:00:05,833 --> 00:00:09,799
is to have a patient in your office with a problem

3
00:00:09,800 --> 00:00:15,433
and you realize that the treatment that you’re
prescribing for that individual

4
00:00:15,433 --> 00:00:21,199
hasn’t changed in 30 years and it isn’t any more
effective than it was 30 years ago.

5
00:00:21,200 --> 00:00:26,800
In order for research to be translated into cures

6
00:00:26,800 --> 00:00:32,600
it’s absolutely necessary for academia and
industry

7
00:00:32,600 --> 00:00:37,800
and also funding organizations to work together
as a team.

8
00:00:37,800 --> 00:00:45,600
It’s proven to be extremely successful in terms
of the return on investment for supporting
research.

9
00:00:45,600 --> 00:00:49,633
It’s hard to get a career started as a clinician.

10
00:00:49,633 --> 00:00:53,633
ATS made a huge difference in my career

11
00:00:53,633 --> 00:00:58,733
so I think all of us who have benefitted in that
way we have an obligation to pay it forward
