“Patients and their families are the most powerful drivers of the orphan drug development process. They allow us to understand the purpose, the urgency. They allow us to focus and to explain to the many parties involved. They allow us to acquire the passion to succeed and to never give up … Nothing is more important.” – Henri Termeer, Former Chairman, President and CEO, Genzyme Corporation
