February 2017 Lunch – “One Health – It’s All Connected”

March 22, 2017

“One Health – It’s All Connected”

The One Health concept recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. The goal of One Health is to encourage the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines-working locally, nationally, and globally-to achieve the best health for people, animals, and our environment.  Sixty percent of infectious diseases in people are spread from animals and the interactions between the points of this triad are changing more rapidly and dynamically than ever before.  Our panel will discuss how looking at the bigger picture will shape drug development and impact innovation and research efforts going forward.

January 2017 -Understanding 21st Century Cures for Drugs and Devices

February 1, 2017

This month we’ll discuss the 21st Century Cures Act – a $6.3 billion, nearly 1,000-page, comprehensive legislation package that passed the U.S. House and Senate in late December 2016. 21st Century Cures overhauls the way drugs and devices will be coming to market; the legislation offers grant funding to states to help fight the opioid epidemic and addresses mental health laws and resources. It also places a big emphasis on research funding – especially for cancer and neurodegenerative diseases – and patient rights. All of these factors are expected to change the research-to-commercialization pathway. Please join us as we learn more about the act and its impact on patients, regulators, and large and small companies.

July 2016 Lunch Program: Women in Life Science Leadership

July 21, 2016

Tuesday, July 19

Every so often we like to highlight and recognize the success and influence of women in the life science industry.  This year, we focus on how women make the move out of the lab (or its sector equivalent) and into company leadership.  Reflecting a national conversation backed by some rather dismal (but improving!) statistics, we will here from 3-4 entrepreneurs and more seasoned leaders about how women acquire the experience, tools, networks, and investor confidence to take charge of their innovations and lead their companies forward.

March 2016 – New Opportunities and New Attacks: The Evolution of Patent Law, Intellectual Property Law, and Litigation Reform Efforts Since the America Invents Act

March 20, 2016

Join our diverse panel of intellectual property practitioners for an informative discussion about the evolving law of patents and other intellectual property, with a focus on patent litigation, reform efforts, and patent office post-grant review proceedings. Touched off by the America Invents Act (“AIA”), rarely has patent law undergone so many changes in such a short period of time. From the AIA to changing Supreme Court law, to federal trade secrets legislation, to the Innovation Act, there is nary a dull moment. Your smorgasbord of challenges to patents, and the defense against those and other challenges, has never been greater … or more confusing and uncertain. The only certainty is that every life sciences organization needs to know this landscape. Come listen as the panel provides you tools to consider your best path forward, which may vary widely depending on your size and business model.

February 2016 Life Science Lunch

February 16, 2016

Clinical Trials from a Study Site Perspective

The conduct of clinical research requires effective working relationships between the study sites that execute clinical trials and the sponsors that design the trials and provide product for testing. With much riding on study outcomes, understanding what happens behind the scenes may help you design more effective trials.  This month’s discussion will explore some of the bigger technical challenges to running a clinical research site, including:
•    Types of clinical trials, sponsors and study sites
•    Staffing/Workforce requirements,  needs, and challenges
•    Managing study site and sponsor expectations
•    Role of an IRB
•    Subject recruitment, screening, informed consent and enrollment
•    Managing costs

“It Does What?! Absorbable Metals and Their Medical Applications”
Since the advent of stainless steel in the early 20th century, the medical community has been well served by the use of corrosion-resistant metals in implantable devices, ranging from vascular stents to orthopedic screws. In some instances, however, leaving a metallic component in the body indefinitely may cause long-term complications. An ideal material would provide mechanical support while the body re-adapts and heals itself, and then harmlessly dissolve away. Absorbable polymers have decades of use in applications including sutures and orthopedics, but in general do not possess sufficient strength to replace corrosion-resistant metals. Nutrient metals (e.g. Mg, Fe, Zn) and their alloys have recently generated significant interest as high-strength alternatives to permanent metals and absorbable polymers. Because these metals are comprised of elements which are physiologically necessary, the body naturally has ways of absorbing them. Significant work is ongoing to ensure these absorbable metals are absorbed at an appropriate rate and in a manner which is both safe and effective.
