Meet the OBR Editorial Board

Editor's Note: At OBR we have created an editorial board of renown thought leaders in different cancer disease areas. The role of our editorial board is to provide valuable insights through editorial commentary accompanying our daily news. We call it virtual access. By providing our insights into the daily news, you will have access into how these thought leading oncologists interpret the oncology news and events we carry in OBR daily. We hope that our editorial boards's insights will bring great value to the oncology community.
