DC: Ideas Night - Greg Simon @ Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP


Members joined us for an inspiring IVY Ideas Night on How To Eradicate Cancer: Lessons from The White House Cancer Moonshot Initiative, featuring the Director of the Biden Cancer Initiative, Greg Simon, and moderated by the Founder & CEO of Immunomic Therapeutics, Inc., Dr. William Hearl. In his final State of the Union address, President Obama asked Vice President Biden to head up the “Cancer Moonshot” to end cancer as we know it. Greg Simon was named the Executive Director of this Initiative, leading a team of professionals to seek out unprecedented advances in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Greg’s work supported the passage of the “21st Century Cures Act” on December 7, 2016, providing $1.8 billion for the Cancer Moonshot over the next seven years.

In this fascinating moderated discussion, Greg revealed the tools necessary to make a Moonshot Initiative succeed. Drawing on his work to harness the resources of government, academia, non-profits, and the private sector in the fight against cancer, Greg illuminated how we can all bring together diverse groups of people to create movements that solve the world’s biggest problems. Before and after the conversation, we enjoyed a complimentary wine reception with a great group of IVY members.
