Myeloid Cells in Cancer and Science Advocacy: A Conversation with Dr. Miriam Merad

In collaboration with The Scientist LabTalk

In their latest podcast, The Scientist LabTalk highlights Dr. Miriam Merad, a speaker at the upcoming “Myeloid Cells & Innate Immunity in Solid Tumors” eSymposia. Dr. Merad is a leader in immune-oncology research, as well as science policy, recently taking a strong stance against the Foreign Scholars Visa Ban proposed by the Trump Administration.

She explains that impeding their entry could do irreparable harm to the dynamic, vibrant and competitive academic workforce that ultimately drives US prowess in cutting-edge research and medical innovation.
