MassBio's Patient Advocacy Summit brings together the patient advocacy community to showcase best practices and cutting-edge examples of how life sciences companies can more fully incorporate the patient voice into the work they do—not just approaching regulatory applications or at commercialization, but throughout the drug development cycle.

This year we'll explore competing views on what value therapies bring to various stakeholders, what a cure is worth to patients and society, how to improve the clinical trial experience for patients, and more. We will also have a frank discussion about patient access in the era of transformative therapies, and you’ll hear directly from patients on what this means to them.

The program includes panel discussions, case study presentations(spotlighting industry/patient partnerships), an inspirational keynote address, as well as a networking lunch and cocktail reception.
