Insights into Immuno-Oncology: Fighting Cancer from Within

4:30 PM — 6:30 PM

A Science Panel Presented by BioLabs@CIC Philadelphia

Immunotherapy, or harnessing the body’s immune system to eliminate or slow the spread of disease, has the potential to upend conventional approaches for treating patients. Early results show improved outcomes and survival rates for people with certain types of cancers, leading to hopes that new drugs working in concert with the immune system may ultimately replace radiation and chemotherapy.

The panel will give their views on the promise of immuno-oncology, focusing on therapies and technologies now emerging from research labs.

Featured speakers include: 

• Peter Melley, director, New Ventures, University City Science Center (moderator)
• Dora Mitchell, PhD, vice president, operations, Carisma Therapeutics
• Dr. Ken Hance, senior director and head of immune biology, Immuno-Oncology and Combinations Discovery Performance Unit (IOC DPU), GlaxoSmithKline
• Matthew Cohen, principal, Osage University Partners
• Melina Blees, site director, BioLabs@CIC Philadelphia

The event is free and open to the public. Space is limited, so be sure to register now.

TechLaunch BullPen #10

4:30 PM — 8:30 PM
Seminar Room, Princeton Innovation Center BioLabs

TechLaunch is shaking things up with a new, open/participatory model to replace the traditional investor pitch in which the startup is sequestered after pitching so that the panel can debate the merits of investing, behind closed doors. Instead, everything and everybody stays in the room. This way, all attendees will benefit from:

  • Networking with other entrepreneurs & investors
  • Hear live feedback to presenting startups
  • Witnessing a mentored and vetted investor pitch
  • Participating in the interaction between startups & investors

This is a rare opportunity for our community to not only witness what goes into a real entrepreneur pitch-to-investor event but to actually be active participants with the ability to shape the outcome of the pitch itself!

Winner gets $20,000 of valuable professional services.

Princeton University, Biolabs Offer Media Tour of New Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs

Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs
303 College Road East, Suite A, Princeton NJ

Please join us for a media tour of the Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs, the newest effort by Princeton University to promote innovation and to support and grow the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem. This preview will include presentations by Johannes Fruehauf, Co-Founder and CEO of Biolabs, and Paul LaMarche, Vice Provost, Space Programming and Facilities at Princeton University, and Chairman of the Princeton Innovation Center, LLC.

The Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs, operated by Biolabs (headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts) provides co-working spaces specifically designed to meet the needs of the highest-potential science startups. The Center is available to companies formed by faculty, students and alumni, as well as by members of the wider New Jersey community. Located at Princeton Forrestal Center, the 31,000-square foot incubator offers a variety of shared space such as wet labs for chemical, biological and pharmaceutical development and dry lab space for engineering development, as well as shared office and desk space for resident companies and related ventures. The Center, which opened this month, is equipped with a broad array of premium scientific equipment and will offer additional services and amenities for resident companies.

The newly renovated space is strategically designed to promote collaboration and help startups go further and faster on limited investment capital, enabling a potentially shorter path from proof-of-concept to commercialization. Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs will also host regular educational programming and community networking events. There is ample free parking available.
