Gerald Messerschmidt, M.D., FACP, Chief Medical Officer at Precision Oncology, has worked in the cancer field for almost four decades.

In this interview from the 59th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, he tells Rare Disease Report why the recent surge in U.S. Food and Drug Administration activity pertaining to rare cancer types is no fluke, and how patients can see long-term survival from breakthrough therapies, and how far the community has come from the National Institute of Health's (NIH) Human-Genome project from the 1990's.
