Dr. Herbst has worked over several decades as a pioneer of personalized medicine and immunotherapy to identify biomarkers and bring novel targeted treatments and immunotherapies to patients, serving as principal investigator for numerous clinical trials testing these agents in advanced stage lung cancers. This work led to the approval of several therapies (such as Gefitinib, Cetuximab, Bevacizumab, Axitinib, Atezolizumab, and Pembrolizumab), which have revolutionized the field and greatly enhanced patient survival. His work on "umbrella” trials has galvanized the field of targeted therapy and cancer drug approvals at the FDA. Nationally, he is at the forefront of personalized medicine and works closely with public-private partnerships to develop large clinical studies, such as Lung-MAP. He testified on this before the House of Representatives 21st Century Cures committee and served as a prominent figure in this area as a member of the NAM Policy forum for 9 years. The NCI Lung SPORE he leads has identified new mechanisms of sensitivity and resistance to immunotherapy. Dr. Herbst is a highly respected clinician scientist who has been a champion of translational medicine for decades, recently authoring a high-profile review of the 20-year progress in lung cancer. He has also been a major proponent of efforts to promote tobacco control and regulation (including e-cigarettes), authoring multiple policy statements and leading frequent Capitol Hill briefings, Dr. Herbst has authored or co-authored more than 300 publications, including peer-reviewed journal articles, abstracts, and book chapters.

Definitions Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their computer terminals, where they are saved and then transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit. The cookies of "third parties" are instead set by a website different from the one that the user is visiting. This is because every website may contain elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc.) that reside on servers different from the one used by the visited website.
Types of cookies Different categories can be distinguished according to the characteristics and use of the cookies:
Technical cookies Technical cookies are those used only for carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They may be broken down into: • navigation or session cookies, which assure normal navigation and use of the website; • cookie analytics, which are assimilated with the technical cookies, when they are used directly by the site operator to gather information in aggregate form on the number of users and how they visit the website itself; • functional cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of criteria selected for the purpose of improving the service provided to that user. The users’ prior consent is not required for the installation of these cookies, while it is understood the obligation to give the information to the data subject which the website operator, if it uses only those devices, may give in the ways that it deems most appropriate.
Profiling cookies Profiling cookies are used to create profiles of the user and are used to send advertising messages tailored to the preferences exhibited by the user when navigating on the internet. Due to the particularly invasive nature that these devices might have in the users’ private life, European , Italian and Swiss law require that the user be adequately informed about their use and thereby express his or her own valid consent. Storing information, or accessing information that is already stored, in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user shall only be permitted on condition that the contracting party or user has given his consent after being informed. This website does not use profiling cookies.
“Third party” cookies When visiting this website, you might receive cookies from the websites managed by other organisations ("third parties"). One example is represented by the presence of "social plugins" for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn, or systems for the display of embedded multimedia content, for example YouTube, Flickr. These parts are generated directly by the aforementioned websites and are integrated in the web page of the visited host site. The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies from and to all the websites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant privacy notices, which should be referred to.
To assure more transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the various privacy notices and cookie management procedures are indicated below.
Duration of cookies Certain cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or execution of any logout command. Other cookies "survive" closure of the browser and are available even during subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. A time-limit is set in certain cases, while the duration is unlimited in other cases.
The cookies used on this web page are deleted immediately after their transmission, no trace of them remains, and they are not persistent.
Cookie management The user may decide whether or not to accept the cookies by using the settings in his or her own browser. Warning: total or partial disabling of the technical cookies might compromise optimal use of the website. Disabling the third party cookies does not impair navigation in any way. The setting may be set specifically for different websites and applications. Moreover, the browsers permit definition of different settings for “proprietary” cookies and “third party” cookies. For example, in Firefox, using the Tools->Options->Privacy menu, a control panel can be accessed for defining whether or not to accept the different cookies and then remove them. Information can be easily found in the internet on how to set the cookies management rules for your own browser. For example the following addresses are provided for the leading browsers:

MSD may use other companies to deliver e-mail communications. MSD does not control the tracking technologies used by these other companies.
Uses made of information:
MSD collects personal information online as necessary to enable individuals to register for, customise and personalise certain of MSD's online resources and communications. MSD uses personal information collected online to provide products, services and features and other resources that individuals have requested; for example, educational literature and related information about MSD's pharmaceutical business, products, e-mail programs, tools, questionnaires, and surveys. MSD may analyse personal information collected online to identify and offer additional services and promotions that we believe you might find interesting. MSD evaluates
use of some online resources and communications with non-identifiable or aggregate information only. MSD also may use personal information to audit its online resources for authorised access and security. When you receive communications from us, you may indicate a preference to stop receiving further communications from us by “opting-out” via the unsubscribe instructions provided in the communication you receive.
Online social media resources are interactive tools that typically enable you to collaborate and share information with others. Some examples of social media resources include social networks, discussion boards, bulletin boards, blogs, wikis, and referral functions to share website content and tools with a friend or colleague. MSD may collect personal information from you to enable you to use online social media resources we may offer from time to time. MSD may also enable you to use these social media resources to post or share personal information with others. You should consider carefully what information about yourself you choose to share with others when you use social media resources. MSD provides additional notice and choices about how personal information is collected, used and disclosed on our websites and other online resources that offer social media.
Some MSD websites and online resources are designed specifically for use on mobile computing devices. Some mobile versions of MSD websites may require that you log in with your user account for that website. Information about your use of the mobile version of the website will be associated with your user account. Some of our websites and online resources enable you to download an application, widget or other tool that you can use on your mobile or other computing device. Some of these tools may store information on your mobile or other device. These tools may transmit personal information to MSD to enable you to access your user account and to enable MSD to track use of these tools. Some of these tools may enable you to e-mail reports and other information from the tool. MSD may use personal or non-identifiable information transmitted to MSD to enhance these tools, to develop new tools, for quality improvement and as otherwise described in this Policy or in other notices MSD provides.
