Episode 26: Coming Full Circle

Podcast cover
Read more
The award of this year's Nobel prize in physiology or medicine to Dr Jim Allison and Dr Tasuku Honjo is a defining moment for cancer research that we want to recognize.

You'll hear from Dr Allison on the very day he heard the announcement. We also take a closer look at what it takes to be a great scientist and explore the limitations on how many people the Nobel prize can recognize in a given year.

If you want to increase your chance of winning, 1993 laureate Sir Richard Roberts FRS takes us through his "Ten Simple Rules to Win a Nobel Prize."

We have come full circle in our journey over the last 3.5 years and now hear the results of a "practice changing" phase 3 cancer immunotherapy trial in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) that we first talked about in the inaugural episode of the podcast, "The Checkpoints Show."

There's also an update from the recent ESMO congress on results from a phase 3 ovarian cancer trial that is potentially "life changing" for women with a BRCA mutation. 

Scientists and clinical researchers you'll hear on this episode include a rich diversity of viewpoints and perspectives: Sir Richard Roberts FRS, Dr James Allison, Dr Phil Greenberg, Dr Ignacio Melero, Dr Pasi Jänne, Dr Tony Mok, Dr Kathleen Moore, Dr Leisha Emens, Dr Sherene Loi, Dr Peter Schmid, Dr Dan Chen and Dr Ira Mellman.

Several of the interviews were recorded at the 2018 CRI CIMT EATI AACR international cancer immunotherapy conference (CICON) in New York, 2018 European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress in Munich and the 2018 Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) annual meeting in Washington DC.

This episode was sponsored by Genentech, we're grateful for their support.

Episode 25: In the shadow of T cells

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode we continue our journey looking at the innate immune system and focus on some important immune cells called natural killer (NK) cells and their potential in cancer immunotherapy.

You'll hear from both academic and industry experts who are active in research in this field, including Dr Todd Fehniger (Washington University in St Louis), Dr Michael Caligiuri (City of Hope), Dr Jeff Miller (Minnesota), Prof Eric Vivier (Innate Pharma via Marseille Immunopole), Dr Nick Huntington (Walter & Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne), Dr James Gulley (NCI), and Dr Deepak Sampath (Genentech).

Some important topics we will cover:

- What are NK cells?
- What do the do?
- How do they 'see'?
- How can they be boosted?
- What kind of approaches have been developed therapeutically?
- What kind of clinical data have we seen so far?
- What's the vision for the future of NK cell therapy development?

You can find more detailed information about the topics discussed in the show notes on https://noveltargets.com.

These interviews were conducted in various cities around the world or at AACR, ASCO, ASH, BMT Tandem and CIMT meetings between 2016 to 2018.

Full transcripts of the individual interviews can be found on https://biotechstrategyblog.com (subscription required).

The music is by violinist and composer David Schulman. Listen to more at http://www.quietlifemotel.com.

In this episode we explore the innate immune system and find out what it is, what it does and why it matters in both health and disease.

You'll hear various perspectives from both academic and industry experts who are active in research in this field, including Dr Glen Barber (Miami), Prof George Coukos (Lausanne), Dr Adi Diab (MD Anderson), Dr Tom Dubensky (Tempest Therapeutics via Aduro Biotech), Dr Tom Gajewski (Chicago), Dr Jonathan Lancaster (Myriad), Dr Ira Mellman (Genentech), Prof Eric Vivier (Innate Pharma via Marseille Immunopole/CIML), Dr Jonathan Zalevsky (Nektar Therapeutics).

Some important topics we will cover:

- What is the innate immune system?
- What does it do?
- How is it different from the adaptive immune system?
- Is it really separate from the adaptive system?
- STING (Stimulator of Interferon Genes)
- Biomarkers
- Toll-like Receptors (TLRs)
