Head of Clinical Research
Chordoma Foundation - 24 October 2022
Fifteen years of investment by the Chordoma Foundation in basic, translational and early clinical research has yielded a growing pipeline of promising systemic therapy concepts, spanning new drug development, repositioning and repurposing.
