February 10th, 2014

October 18, 2011

Host Dr. Tim Cripe and co-host Dr. Lionel Chow welcome special guest Dr. Jeff Toretsky on TWiPO to discuss his clinical and research interest in Ewing's sarcoma. Dr. Toretsky explains the challenges of developing a clinical grade drug from a small molecule for a specific target such as EWS-FLI1. The small market for a disease like Ewing's creates formidable hurdles for researchers, yet Dr. Toretsky is driven on by the question "If I don't do this, who will?" (17:54 mins)

Dr. Jeff Toretsky is Professor of Oncology and Pediatrics at Georgetown University. He graduated with BS in Biochemistry from University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, and recieved his MD from University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN. He completed fellowship training at the NCI Pediatric Branch.
