The Equation: January 2023

January is a time of fresh starts for all, so it follows that this month’s Equation features novel insights and innovations that offer patients a new lease on life as well as new ways of perceiving it.

From the first topical gene therapy that will be used to treat epidermolysis bullosa, to the Innovative Medicines Accelerator’s projects to develop glioblastoma drugs, to a major boost for kidney transplantation and gene-editing techniques, to a video highlighting the legendary Willie Mays’s lively and moving letter to Stanford Health Care, to the announcement of registration for SHE Talks (formerly the Women’s Health Lunch), this issue is brimming with new opportunities to cultivate and celebrate healthful potential.
