First, we dig into Biogen’s much-dissected data on a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, with on-the-ground takes from experts at a scientific conference. Then, STAT’s Eric Boodman joins us to spin a drug-discovery yarn involving one-eyed sheep, Basque farmers, and the quest to treat a rare form of cancer.
