Biovista President Dr. Aris Persidis will be presenting at the New York Biotechnology Association 2013 Annual meeting.

Dr Persidis will be presenting at the “Patient Perspectives: Seeking Cures, Not Just Returns” session and discuss Biovista’s work to date with Patient Advocacy Groups.

According to the organizers “patient groups and disease foundations, no longer content to wait for someone else to fund research and development, are expanding the meaning of “finance,” bringing a combination of advocacy, policy, and money together in a model revolutionizing R&D investment.”

Dr Persidis’ talk will focus on what this means for the various stakeholders involved, the way new treatments are developed and the implications for traditional funding and research models.
