"Hi, Jonathan! We have just ended the Medical Summit and it was a success. Bertalan was great and thought-provoking, he definitely met our expectations and received plenty of questions from the audience. In general, the message that resonated most was “I am the patient of the future”, where the patient is technology empowered and has certain expectations, I think that’s the key takeaway that our teams will work with. Also, David Reese, Executive VP and head of Amgen Global R&D was attending and sitting front row. I hope he himself enjoyed being with us!" Greta Malciauskaite, MSc
