From patient stories, to the latest research updates from PSC experts, to collaborations that are necessary to find better treatments and a cure, this podcast has it all!In episode 31, Host Niall McKay talks with Josh Korzenik, MD, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Dan Pratt, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital, about the upcoming 2022 Annual PSC Partners Conference, June 2-5, now in a virtual format. This is the second of two conversations about this Conference. "It's going to be a slightly different and very exciting conference," says Dr. Korzenik. "It's envisioning a very different kind of future for PSC where there's a broader engagement of everybody, and it's really becoming much more of an international community, which is very exciting." Dr. Pratt agrees, adding, "An exciting research initiative that will be rolled out at the conference is the WIND Initiative (Worldwide Integration of Natural History Databases), which will, hopefully, accelerate our identification of new therapies for PSC."
