Nearly three years before Devin Golden joined Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy, he began his first job in the field of cancer. He worked for more than two years as a content specialist for a mesothelioma patient advocacy organization, where he grew a deep passion for helping people affected by all types of cancer. This inspires him to join the team with Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy as the Content Manager.
“I feel this vision – a cancer-free future – is my calling,” says Mr. Golden, who earned a journalism degree in 2010 and worked for various news publications for six years before transitioning to digital marketing. “Pretty quickly upon producing content related to cancer, I became invested in new therapies and treatment options. Immune checkpoint inhibitors, gene therapy and T-cell therapy are the next frontier in cancer treatment.”
Mr. Golden is responsible for producing and maintaining all external communication efforts. He plans to use his digital marketing and content production experience to raise awareness of Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy initiatives, including grant funding for research and clinical trials. He hopes his efforts, along with those of his colleagues, will usher in a cancer-free future for mankind.
“The work being done by organizations like Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy is work I want to do to help people who have been told for years they have no options aside from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation,” says Mr. Golden.
