South By Southwest has announced Ex-Vice President Joe Biden will give a speech  during the festival about efforts to end cancer.

Biden will be a featured speaker in Austin on Sunday, during the portion of the festival focusing on interactive technology. Biden will discuss plans for his new cancer-fighting initiative.

The initiative will focus on improving data standards to help researchers, work with community care organizations to improve access to care and push to ensure patients can afford treatments.

Biden previously led a White House “cancer moonshot” effort to accelerate developments toward a cure.

The former vice president has focused on improving cancer research efforts since his son, former Army officer and Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died of brain cancer in 2015.
