Vivek Subbiah: A story of meeting with a legend

Vivek Subbiah shared a post on LinkedIn:

“Sharing a story of meeting with a legend …

A goosebumps moment & an example of what an amazing place Gustave Roussy INSERM Prism Center is ?

After my keynote lecture at Gustave Roussey this phenomenal person walks up to me.. . “Dr. Subbiah – great talk etc ……. you mentioned BRAF as tissue agnostic target….” Wait for it …

“by the way – my name is Alain Eychene – I cloned the BRAF gene in 1980’s” – wow

Such a great honor to meet with the one and only Alain Eychene !!!”
