So, Dr. Pemmaraju, tell us, why are you here at ASCO, and why is it important?  

And so I think the biggest takeaway I can bring is I think it recenters it back on a patient-focused patient-centered approach, begin, middle, ending, all about our patients. And if you do that, for example, like Ruben Mesa did with the symptom burden scale in MPNs, that speaks to a lot of our viewers, then you can always guide your research, good days and bad days, negative data, positive data, it's always about the patient.
