Dennis Chang to Speak at the 2nd Emerging Frontiers in Oncology Summit


Once again this year, Dennis Chang, a Clarion Principal will join a distinguished set of speakers from industry, academia, and venture capital at the upcoming Emerging Frontiers in Oncology Summit on Feb 25th at MassBio. Dennis’ talk titled, Origin Stories & Current Initiatives: The Geography of Cancer Drug Innovation, maps out where cancer therapies were discovered and developed and discusses the role that hubs like Boston/Cambridge can play on the broader stage.

This year’s event focuses on the global dynamics of cancer innovation, and features multiple formats including an in-depth fireside chat, a debate-style exchange as well as a more traditional moderated panel addressing:

  • Research: Biotech is a melting pot – do region-specific funding structures coalesce in a way that is supportive of a future global pipeline?
  • Innovation: Networked hubs – what are the most relevant models given recent market events in oncology?
  • People: Replenishing industry hubs’ talent pools – how can we better leverage region-specific skillsets?

The event is being organized by Uciane Scarlett, a principal at Oxford Sciences Innovation and Clarion alumna, in support of her efforts to raise funds for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center as part of Luke Timmerman’s Everest Base Camp Trek Climb to Fight Cancer.  Clarion is excited to be supporting what is sure to be a dynamic and insightful event and we hope to see you in attendance.
