    High-throughput experimentation (HTE) is a powerful tool in chemistry, allowing exploration of a wide range of reaction conditions, substrates, and other variables and generating datasets of use in applying machine learning methods to chemical prediction. But HTE can sometimes be viewed as inaccessible to the academic chemist, while also presenting unique challenges in data analysis and management. In this panel, Tim Cernak, Dani Schultz, Jacob Janey, and Matthew Gaunt will discuss the myths surrounding HTE (7:52), the challenges and benefits of employing it in academia and industry (22:32), how to get started with HTE (36:36), and the future of the field (44:33).

    Tim Cernak is an Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where the Cernak Lab is exploring an interface of chemical synthesis and data science. Prior to the University of Michigan, Tim was a member of the Medicinal Chemistry team at Merck Sharp & Dohme.

    Dani Schultz is the Director of the Discovery Process Chemistry Group at Merck. During her time at Merck, she has been involved in the development of synthetic routes for drug candidates spanning HIV and oncology and has utilized HTE and photochemistry to address the synthetic challenges that occur during pharmaceutical development.

  • Emerging technologies and clinical research in Latin America Recorded: Nov 18 2020 120 mins
    David Collingridge,Carlos Barrios,Eduado Cazap,Gustavo Werutsky,Georgina Sposetti,Rodrigo Dienstmann & Stephen Stephani
    Cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide, and an increasing threat in low-income and middle-income countries. In 2013 and 2015, The Lancet Oncology published two Commissions that highlighted the cancer landscape in Latin America and how it differed from more developed countries. The reports showed that funding for health care was just a small percentage of national gross domestic product and the percentage of health-care funds diverted to cancer care was even lower. Funding, insurance coverage, numbers of doctors, health-care workers, resources, and equipment were inequitably distributed between and within Latin American countries. The Commissions emphasised the need for structural reforms in health-care systems, the need for dedicated cancer control programmes for disenfranchised populations, the importance of expanding coverage of cancer registries and cancer plans, and the effect of implementing policies to improve primary cancer prevention. In this webinar, renowned experts from Brazil, Argentina, and Spain, revisit cancer control in Latin America via a more contemporaneous lens, with a focus on the challenges surrounding academic research funding, clinical trial recruitment, big data, and wider access to the latest diagnostic technologies.
  • Sustainable care for children with cancer: a Lancet Oncology Commission Recorded: Nov 18 2020 116 mins
    Ali Landman, Carlos Rodriguez-Galindo, Kathy Pritchard-Jones, Rifat Atun
    Cancer kills more than 100,000 children each year, and yet 80% of pediatric cancers are curable with currently available interventions. Notably, the majority of these deaths occur in low‐income and middle-income countries. Yet no reliable data are available in low-income and middle-income countries on the burden of childhood cancer; on the cost of effective interventions; on current health coverage levels; or on the cost, feasibility, or health and economic benefits of scaling-up effective coverage.

    In March, 2020, The Lancet Oncology published a Commission on Sustainable care for children with cancer, which provided a new analysis of the global childhood cancer burden and developed an economic investment case and evidence-based medical framework for implementing, integrating, and scaling up care pathways for childhood cancer.

    Join Dr. Ali Landman, Deputy Editor of The Lancet Oncology, and Commission authors, as they discuss the aims, findings, and recommendations from the Commission.
