    VIP speaker bio and presentation abstract (more later)

    Nils Lonberg, Ph.D.

    Senior VP, Oncology Discovery Biology, Bristol-Myers Squibb

    Bio: Dr. Lonberg is Senior VP, Oncology Discovery Biology at Bristol-Myers Squibb, where he leads drug discovery efforts for both targeted oncology agents and immuno-oncology agents. Dr. Lonberg began his career in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry leading the research group at GenPharm International that developed genetically engineered strains of mice with germline-configuration human immunoglobulin genes. These transgenic animals have been used to discover over three dozen clinical-stage human sequence antibodies, including ten FDA approved products (golimumab, ustekinumab, ofatumumab, canakinumab, ipilimumab, nivolumab, secukinumab, daratumumab, bezelotoximab, and olaratumab). In 1997, GenPharm was acquired by Medarex, which was in turn acquired by Bristol-Myers Squibb in 2009. Beginning in 1998, Dr. Lonberg’s research group focused on antibody therapies that target and modulate immune attenuating pathways to activate patient immune responses to cancer cells (so-called “checkpoint blockade” therapies). Ipilimumab, which began clinical testing in 2000, was the first ever checkpoint blockade cancer therapy to enter clinical development and to gain regulatory approval. Ipilimumab, which gained regulatory approval in 2011, was also the first drug to ever demonstrate a survival benefit for patients with metastatic melanoma in a randomized clinical trial. A second checkpoint blockade cancer therapeutic from Dr. Lonberg’s group, nivolumab, entered clinical development in 2006 and gained regulatory approval in 2014. Dr. Lonberg received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from Harvard University in 1985, where he studied under Professor Walter Gilbert, and he was a post-doctoral fellow at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.  Dr. Lonberg was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2015.

    Presentation Title: Combining Discreet Immune Mechanisms for Cancer Therapy: From Concept to Clinical Evidence

    Abstract: The cancer immunotherapy drugs ipilimumab and nivolumab target the immune checkpoint molecules CTLA-4 and PD-1 respectively.  While both targets are mediators of immune attenuation, preclinical, and now clinical, data clearly demonstrate that ipilimumab and nivolumab have very different mechanisms of action.  The combination of these discreet mechanisms showed early promise in preclinical assays and models.  That data led to clinical testing of the combined use of both drugs in multiple different cancer types.  The combination is now FDA approved in melanoma and kidney cancer, with clinical development continuing in a variety of other cancers.  The mechanism of action of this now validated therapy will be discussed.

    Chris Chen, PhD

    CEO, WuXi Biologics

    Bio: Dr. Chris Chen is currently Chief Executive Officer at WuXi Biologics, a Hong Kong listed public company with market cap of approx. $10+ billion USD. At WuXi he has built a world-class open-access integrated biologics discovery, development and manufacturing platform enabling full spectrum of companies ranging from 2-employee virtual companies to Top 20 global large pharma. WuXi has transformed the global biotech industry by enabling entrepreneurs to build successful biotech companies with no need for investing in infrastructure for people, labs or manufacturing. Under his leadership, WuXi has assembled one of the largest biologics teams with over 2700 scientists enabling 60+ biologics entering into clinical trials per year. WuXi has also pioneered disposable-bioreactor based state-of-the-art commercial manufacturing facility and built the first 30,000L bioreactor capacity in the world using disposables. The globally leading platform developed by WuXi Biologics is now serving more than 200 companies worldwide.

    Dr. Chen obtained his dual bachelor’s degrees of chemical engineering and automation at Tsinghua University, Beijing China and his Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Delaware, US.  He then gained valuable experience in biologics development, manufacturing and quality in the US, where his previous assignments include director and manager positions at Lilly and Merck. Dr. Chen later joined Shanghai Celgen Biopharmaceuticals as Chief Operating Officer, successfully developed a high-titer high-quality commercial process for biosimilar etanercept and obtained regulatory approval for the program in China in 2011. He chaired multiple conferences in biochemical engineering and mab development in US and China and is frequently invited to speak at multiple conferences. He is also adjunct professor at Shanghai Jiaotong University. Dr Chen is co-author and co-inventor of 60+ publications and patents.

    Presentation Title: In-China-for-Global Biologics: The Exciting Story of WuXi Biologics

    Abstract: Biologics are transforming recent healthcare by addressing unmet medical needs, biologics discovery, development and manufacturing, however, requires significant expertise and investment. Prior to WuXi Biologics investment in biologics, China lags behind the global standards significantly. Over the past seven years, WuXi Biologics has successfully built a world-class biologics platform, developing 161 biologics concurrently from 100+ global clients. Recent approval of Taimed’s Trogarzo showcased ultimate success of the WuXi Biologics investment as it is the first company in China to obtain regulatory approval for commercial manufacturing of biologics in China.

    Presentation Title: A world-class breakthrough in blood cancer treatment done by China biotech company Legend Biotech with CART cell therapy

    Abstract: At 2017 ASCO conference in Chicago, Legend Biotech reported the result of preliminary clinical trials in multiple myeloma with its unique CART cell therapy technology. This report was heralded as one of the biggest news of 2017 ASCO and the most successful cancer treatment in the history. Since then many biggest pharma companies have been attracted to Nanjing for license and collaboration negotiation. By the end of 2017, we have concluded a deal with Janssen Pharmaceuticals for a 50:50 cost-and-profit-sharing, worldwide collaboration contract (70:30 in great China). The upfront payment from Janssen to Legend was $350M with additional escalating milestone payments. This deal also sets a big milestone in business development between a China biotech and a US conglomerate pharma companies. I will describe how Legend biotech develops from ground zero to a world class innovative cancer-fighting player. 

    Deborah Charych, PhD

    Executive Director, Nektar Therapeutics

    Bio: Dr. Deborah Charych has held senior scientific leadership positions in both academia at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and in biotechnology at Chiron Corporation, FivePrime Therapeutics, and now at Nektar Therapeutics. At Nektar Therapeutics, she leads the strategic development of the Immuno-Oncology pipeline and identified a novel approach to modulate the tumor microenvironment using polymer-molecular engineering. This work led to the development of NKTR-214, a biased agonist of the IL-2 pathway, currently in Phase 2 clinical development. Alternative engineering of the IL-2 pathway led to the clinical development of NKTR-358 for autoimmune disease. NKTR-358 is currently in Phase I and successfully partnered with Eli Lilly. Follow-on cytokine and small molecule immune modulators are slated for the clinic in 2018 (NKTR-255, an IL-15 receptor agonist and NKTR-262, a TLR 7/8 agonist). At FivePrime Therapeutics, Deborah led a team that contributed to the clinical development of FP-1039, a pan-FGF inhibitor biologic for oncology in Phase II clinical trials. As Director of FivePrime’s Process Development group, she also led the downstream process development of several complex fusion biologics for oncology and inflammation, scaling from Research to GMP manufacturing. While at Chiron Corporation she initiated and led a large proteomics effort to guide oncology target discovery. She also developed novel combinatorial libraries of peptoids to develop immune adjuvants and drug delivery agents. At Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, she assumed an academic leadership role as Principal Investigator, focusing on new polymeric materials for biosensor applications. Deborah’s formal education is in Chemistry, earning a PhD from University of California at Berkeley and a B.S. in Chemistry from Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA.

    Presentation Title: Harnessing potent immune agonist pathways for oncology and beyond

    Abstract: Many potent endogenous proteins that activate important biological pathways are difficult to translate into exogenous therapies because of toxicities, poor pharmacokinetics or sub-optimal pharmacodynamics. We have engineered endogenous proteins and exogenous small molecules using polymer technology to enable viable medicines. NKTR-214 is in Phase 2 clinical trials and a key example of how polymer conjugation can bias the well-known IL2 receptor pathway to favor CD8 T cell tumor infiltration over Tregs. Other examples to be discussed are NKTR-255, an IL15 receptor agonist and NKTR-262, a small molecule conjugate that stimulates toll-like receptor (TLR). Each agent has been conjugated in unique ways to elicit desirable and controlled pharmacological and immunological outcomes.
