About the event
“It was an extremely stimulating day both intellectually and emotionally. I had joy learning about Elixsys platform and VCR Park and the ethic that underlies both of them resonates very strongly in me. As Director, Global Oncology am looking forward to collaborating with many stakeholders from this conference.”
“Elixsys platform is an excellent model for doing two things- one to bring all the intellectuals together and initiate collaboration and immediately brings the government to provide funding or regulatory easing."
"The technology right now is expensive, and it is highly individualized, but these are just the first few days of what we hope is a completely different journey in cancer therapy that will change standards of care across the world."
“We should complement the Govt of AP, Chief minister Sri Nara Chandra Babu Naidu has really given a new focus and thrust to research and innovation. Priority areas like prevention, prophylaxis, health education should be the crucial areas in cancer care.”
“I am really enjoying being at the conference and it is for better than what I expected. It is not just a scientific conference but a socio-politico-economic and scientific leaders meeting. The delegates in the conference from India and abroad are really the “leaders”.
“The objective and scientific content of the conference made me believe that it is very exciting and novel platform. It brings several stakeholders from start-ups, seed funders, translational researchers, experts in intellectual property and several oncologists under one roof. The roundtable discussions were extremely productive. The upcoming bio- cluster will serve a very important unmet need and “Elixsys platform” would serve as a valuable tool in facilitating the unmet needs on collaboration.”
“I thank Dr. Himabindu on bringing together the stakeholders working in cancer biology and connecting the scientists in India with the global. The vision of Dr. Himabindu and how she identified the strengths in the country regarding hospitals, academia, research institutes and the industry is what attracted me to the conference. Bringing all of them on a single platform to discuss and take initiatives is remarkable. As Dean-in-Charge, School of Life sci- ences for University of Hyderabad and as a member of Federation of Asian Biotech Associa- tions (FABA) we would support this vision and help in setting up the VCR Park.”
"With recent advances if we can detect cancer we could be arriving at screening techniques which can detect cancer at early stages that can be a breakthrough. With the rise in seed funding for many academic scientists and increase in the number of incubators encourages innovation in research.”
“I must congratulate the organisers and particularly I am so impressed by Dr. Himabindu for bringing all the visionary people under one roof to discuss about innovation.I have attend- ed many large conferences where people interact with only the people they know but, in this conference, whosoever attended had actively participated and are highly focussed. Whatever Dr. Himabindu has done in a year and half is truly amazing!
“This conference has been fun, interesting and different from various cancer conferences I attend in the USA. It is interesting on how the leaders from different sectors have come together and this will open new avenues to collaboration and building an ecosystem.”
“This is the first conference I have seen in last 12 years that is very focused on one single area, oncology and innovation, which is number one killer in Japan, number two in USA and it is a big problem. I would like to thank Himabindu garu & team for organizing this conference where I have first seen that level of intellectual stimulating conference. VCR park is the greatest idea and much needed particularly for cancer. By having lot of business development expertise and an efficient business model VCR park can be successful.”
“The conference is unique in many ways where it has brought academicians and investors in the same room. Based on my own personal research it is a great forum to try and find the right partners and am very excited about meeting and interacting with people. Translational research is the next big wave in USA and you are the early surfers in Vizag.”
