Michael Milken says the best is yet to come from an astonishing medical revolution.
What if cleaning early-stage cancers from your body could become as routine as going to the dentist to clean your teeth, or if a single vaccine could protect you against multiple viruses, or if gene editing could eliminate many birth defects and slow the aging process? Milken believes these, and many other advances, are within reach.
Beginning with a description of the culture that helped shape Milken’s early views, Faster Cures: Accelerating the Future of Health traces the life-extending acceleration of progress in medical research, public health, and clinical treatments over the seven decades since Milken’s childhood—and shows how he helped transform the process of developing disease cures to accelerate medicine’s evolution from a dark past to a bright future.
After two decades of actively supporting medical research as a philanthropist, Milken became a patient in 1993 when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Over the last three decades, he has increased his focus on making the research process more effective and efficient.
“Faster Curesis an extraordinary and inspiring book.” – Dean Ornish, MD
“It’s a primer on leadership from the brilliant mind of Mike Milken.” –Karen Knudsen, CEO of the American Cancer Society
