Is there a cure for allergies? Has the FDA become too flexible? And which drugs make you muscular?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. Recorded live from from the STAT Breakthrough Summit East in New York City, we discuss some event highlights, including words from CRISPR pioneer Feng Zhang and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals head scientist George Yancopoulos. We also discuss the latest news in the life sciences, including a twist in the GLP-1 story, the cost of gene therapy, and, of course, pie.


For more on what we cover, here’s our full Summit coverage; here’s more on Medicare and GLP-1s; here’s where you can find episodes of Color Code; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s where you can subscribe to our biotech newsletter, The Readout.
