DECIPHERING IMMUNO-ONCOLOGY: TRENDS IN DEAL-MAKING AND R&D
January 10, 2017 - San Franciso, CA
Checkpoint inhibitors were a start for immunotherapies in cancer—but it's clear that the best way to manipulate the immune system to better defend against cancer is to intervene in multiple ways in the immune response pathway. A number of approaches are in the works including a variety of cell-based therapies, antibodies, small molecules and vaccines. Major cancer players Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck, Genentech and Celgene have been making their bets, as have Wall Street and VCs. We’ll examine the relative strengths and weaknesses of various strategies in development—and how they’re likely to fit together, as well as the wheeling-and-dealing that’s aiming to get us there.
THE TOP USE CASES FOR 5G: DRONES, AUTONOMOUS DRIVING, VR & MORE
January 6, 2017 - Caesars Palace | Emperors Ballroom | Las Vegas, NV
Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and others are already testing high-band services that will likely form the basis of 5G. Some operators hope to launch commercial 5G service as early as next year. In the meantime, vendors are preparing for a new wave of demand for equipment that will support the 1 Gbps speeds and billions of devices that 5G promises to connect and enable.
But what exactly will all those 5G devices be doing? The answers span the gamut: Replacing wired fiber internet connections; providing super-low latency for autonomous driving; powering high-bandwidth applications like virtual reality and augmented reality; controlling high-powered machinery and robots; remotely enabling surgery and other tele-health services; connecting millions of devices including fleets of drones; and more.
