Episode 22: Practice, Pitfalls, and Possibilities
Welcome back to Season 4! In this latest episode, we take a look at data from immunotherapy clinical trials from several different angles and investigate the challenges associated presented by different combination partners, control arms, patient populations, biomarkers, line of therapy, etc. When important phase 3 readouts hit the newswires, inevitable questions follow: - Is the data practice changing? - Which regimen should be used with which patient population? - What happens on the Weds after the conference in the clinic when a new patient presents; will oncologists do anything differently? While it's nice to have several positive trial results, how do physicians go about making sense of them? What are some of the hidden pitfalls of cross-trial comparisons that we should watch out for and consider? Professor Tom Powles (Barts Cancer Centre, London) is our narrator for this show and walks us through various challenges and opportunities that both investigators and oncologists face. We explore various examples from recent randomised clinical trial results in lung, renal and bladder cancers, as well as metastatic melanoma. Â Along the way, we interview numerous experts who have treated cancer patients with several different types of therapy and participated in clinical trials, including Drs Roy Herbst (Yale), Hossein Borghaei (Fox Chase), Jack West (Swedish), Alan Sandler (Genentech) in lung cancer. Other specialists discuss the underlying science and practical aspects they have experienced to help illustrate the challenges and opportunities that the complexity in unravelling cancer presents and look at how emerging biomarkers can help. These include Professor Charles Swanton FRS and Dr Nicky McGranahan (UCL), Drs David Fabrizio (Foundation Medicine) and Kunle Odunsi (Roswell Park). Â We also touch on the future and how important 'big data' is becoming, not just in terms of clinical trials, but the possibilities that it offers for personalising therapy. Dr Lizzie Coker (now at Sanger Institute) explains how her work on developing a public repository is intended to empower basic scientists with big datasets and the value of social media for young researchers.

308. Insights: Fintech Friday in Luxembourg
Last year we introduced you to the wonderful world of Luxembourg fintech through LHoFT, nine months later we've been invited back. Laura Watkins explores how Luxembourg has solidified its place in Europe as a fintech hub and how this tiny country plans to extend its reach globally by talking to some of the key players in Luxembourg's fintech space, including: Pierre Gramegna, Luxembourg Finance Minister, Nasir Zubairi, CEO of LHoFT - (lux House of Fin Tech) Susanne Schartz, Chief Operating Officer, Seqvoia, a homegrown Luxembourg fintech Luc Falempin, CEO at tokeny.com Alberto Dalmasso, Co-Founder and CEO of Satispay Laura finds out how Luxembourg is capitalising on interest in blockchain, supporting 'older' fintechs that sowed the seeds for the fintech hub and what outsiders think about the small country with big ambitions and why some of them are relocating to the picturesque nation surrounded by major European economic players. Luxembourg has managed to attract major global players like Amazon and Alipay, has considerable global ambitions and that's just scratching the surface. It seems as though David has managed to take on Goliath in this situation and Luxembourg is well on its way to becoming a global fintech powerhouse with the ecosystem they've managed to put in place.
