Sonia Vallabh
Prion Scientist
Broad Institute (Cambridge, MA)

In 2010, Sonia learned that she inherited a causal mutation of prion disease and as such launched a new therapeutic initiative to discover drugs for this condition and assemble a clinical pipeline to translate these advances into meaningful gains for patients. Sonia will tell her incredible story and talk about collaboration between academia and small pharma and how IP has played into her work and roles at the Broad and Prion Alliance.
