(NASDAQ: STRO), a clinical-stage drug discovery, development and manufacturing company focused on the application of precise protein engineering and rational design to create next-generation cancer and autoimmune therapeutics, today announced that Bill Newell, Chief Executive Officer, will participate in the Ovarian Cancer Panel discussion at the Cowen 41st Annual Healthcare Conference on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, at 12:50 p.m. ET / 9:50 a.m. PT and, along with members of Sutro’s senior management team, will conduct one-on-one meetings with members of the investment community. The Ovarian Cancer Panel will stream live on the Cowen conference website. About Sutro Biopharma Sutro Biopharma, Inc., located in South San Francisco, is a clinical-stage drug discovery, development and manufacturing company. Using precise protein engineering and rational design, Sutro is advancing next-generation oncology therapeutics. Sutro’s proprietary and integrated cell-free protein synthesis platform XpressCF® and site-specific conjugation platform XpressCF+™ led to the discovery of STRO-001 and STRO-002, Sutro’s first two internally-developed ADCs. STRO-001 is a CD74-targeting ADC currently being investigated in a Phase 1 clinical trial of patients with advanced B-cell malignancies, including multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. STRO-001 was granted Orphan Drug Designation by the FDA for multiple myeloma in October 2018. STRO-002 is a folate receptor alpha (FolRα)-targeting ADC, currently being investigated in a Phase 1 clinical trial of patients with ovarian and endometrial cancers. This is the second product candidate to be evaluated in clinical trials resulting from Sutro’s XpressCF® and XpressCF+™ technology platforms. A third program, CC-99712 (BCMA-targeting ADC), which is part of Sutro’s collaboration with Bristol Myers Squibb (formerly Celgene Corporation), is enrolling patients for its Phase 1 clinical trial of patients with multiple myeloma. Sutro’s proprietary technology was responsible for the discovery and manufacturing of CC-99712, for which Bristol Myers Squibb has worldwide development and commercialization rights. Sutro is entitled to development and regulatory milestone payments and tiered royalties from Bristol Myers Squibb for this BCMA ADC. Sutro is dedicated to transforming the lives of cancer patients by creating medicines with improved therapeutic profiles for areas of unmet need. To date, Sutro’s platform has led to cytokine-based immuno-oncology therapies, ADCs, vaccines and bispecific antibodies directed at precedented targets in clinical indications where the current standard of care is suboptimal. The platform allows it to accelerate discovery and development of potential first-in-class and best-in-class molecules through rapid and systematic evaluation of protein structure-activity relationships to create optimized homogeneous product candidates. In addition to developing its own oncology pipeline, Sutro is collaborating with select pharmaceutical and biotech companies to discover and develop novel, next-generation therapeutics. As the pace of clinical development accelerates, Sutro and its partners are developing therapeutics designed to more efficiently kill tumors without harming healthy cells. Investor Contacts Annie J.

We can’t create a special category for layers when unfortunately the whole country is facing a difficult situation. Let the BCI decide”, the Court said.The Bench further noted that all people were without work, where the whole country is facing a ‘difficult situation’. The Bar Council has a role to play during the pandemic, added the Bench, but the Court cannot create a separate category for lawyers.”All persons are without work. Architects are without work, others are without work. This is something for the BCI to consider. How can we create a special category for lawyers?”, said Justice Kaul. “BCI has a role to play during this pandemic. If an individual lawyer is in distress they help. This is a disease which affects the country as a whole of which lawyers are a part”, he added.The petitioner, advocate Pawan Prakash Pathak, appeared in person and highlighted the grievance of independent lawyers who have been left with no source of income. Affixing responsibility on the BCI to look after the well-being of advocates, Pathak submitted that the Top Court could direct Body to take action in furtherance of lawyers’ statutory rights under the Advocates Act 1961.”We have written to the Bar Councils…BCI has to look after the interests and privileges of the advocates…Lawyers have a statutory right under the Advocates Act. This Court can direct BCI to take action”, he submitted.The bench, however, disagreed with the submission and reiterated that the petitioner must take their grievance to the BCI.”We have no funds to give to you. It’s for the bar councils to take action. We cannot tell the bar council…How can this be part of a direction under Article 32? It is for the Bar Council to take a call…approach BCI.”Certain Bar Councils such as Jharkhand and West Bengal have already taken up this issue. Justice Ramana referred to the same and stated that some Bar Councils have taken up the issue of funding independent lawyers in distress, indicating that the Court had no role to play in the same.Next Story read more

Naftali Group files plans for 400-unit towers in Williamsburg

first_imgShare via Shortlink Message* Full Name* Miki Naftali of Naftali Group and 470 Kent Avenue (Getty; Google Maps)Miki Naftali is moving forward with one of the largest residential construction projects of the pandemic era.The developer plans to build a pair of apartment buildings on the Williamsburg waterfront with more than 400 units, according to records filed with the city’s Department of Buildings.Plans call for two buildings reaching as tall as 22 stories at 480 and 490 Kent Avenue, with more than 485,000 square feet of space and 431 units between them. That would include about 20,000 square feet of commercial space across both buildings.Representatives for the Naftali Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Naftali went into contract to buy the site — one of the last large parcels left undeveloped along the Williamsburg waterfront — for about $180 million in early 2019. The developer closed on a portion of the site in May for about $100 million and is expected to finalize the rest of the deal at a later date.Read moreNY ain’t dead: Naftali, Seinfeld team up on billboardNaftali Group files plans for Upper East Side condoCoffee Talk with Miki Naftali Email Address*center_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink At the time of the closing, Naftali acknowledged the challenges posed by the then-nascent coronavirus pandemic, but said it hadn’t changed his resolve to move forward with the project.“We believe in the future of New York and are invested in this great city,” he said at the time. “While we recognize the difficult times that we are facing from the Covid-19 pandemic, New York City will come out of this crisis stronger and better than before — just as we have done in the past. Our long term plans reaffirm our views of the strong residential market here.

The low-resolution version of HadGEM3 GC3.1: development and evaluation for global climate

first_imgA new climate model, HadGEM3 N96ORCA1, is presented that is part of the GC3.1 configuration of HadGEM3. N96ORCA1 has a horizontal resolution of ~135 km in the atmosphere and 1° in the ocean and requires an order of magnitude less computing power than its medium‐resolution counterpart, N216ORCA025, while retaining a high degree of performance traceability. Scientific performance is compared to both observations and the N216ORCA025 model. N96ORCA1 reproduces observed climate mean and variability almost as well as N216ORCA025. Patterns of biases are similar across the two models. In the northwest Atlantic, N96ORCA1 shows a cold surface bias of up to 6 K, typical of ocean models of this resolution. The strength of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (16 to 17 Sv) matches observations. In the Southern Ocean, a warm surface bias (up to 2 K) is smaller than in N216ORCA025 and linked to improved ocean circulation. Model El Niño/Southern Oscillation and Atlantic Multidecadal Variability are close to observations. Both the cold bias in the Northern Hemisphere (N96ORCA1) and the warm bias in the Southern Hemisphere (N216ORCA025) develop in the first few decades of the simulations. As in many comparable climate models, simulated interhemispheric gradients of top‐of‐atmosphere radiation are larger than observations suggest, with contributions from both hemispheres. HadGEM3 GC3.1 N96ORCA1 constitutes the physical core of the UK Earth System Model (UKESM1) and will be used extensively in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 6 (CMIP6), both as part of the UK Earth System Model and as a stand‐alone coupled climate model.last_img read more

INS Godavari Successfully Foils Piracy Attempt on Greek Ship

first_img View post tag: Greek View post tag: Naval INS Godavari has successfully foiled a piracy attempt on a Greek ship MV Elinakos in the Gulf of Aden. Eight Somali pirates attempted to hijack the Greek ship in the early morning of 16 Jul.INS Godavari was escorting four other ships at the time in the Gulf of Aden, when she received the distress call. INS Godavari was quick to launch a helicopter to locate the skiff being used by the pirates. She subsequently launched marine commandos to board the pirate boat. On being approached by the naval boat, they dumped their arms, ammunition and other piracy triggers. A German naval ship, the Niedersachsen, also coordinated with Godavari in the operation. INS Godavari continued with her escort mission, on completion of the operation.INS Godavari has been deployed in anti-piracy escort operations in the Gulf of Aden since 25 May 11, and has safely escorted 219 ships of various countries since then. Last week, INS Godavari escorted a Pakistani ship, the MV Islamabad, with an all-Pakistani crew of 38. The Indian Navy has been deploying ships since 2008 in the Gulf of Aden for escorting merchant vessels and Indian Naval ships have escorted 1,665 ships successfully.[mappress]Source: indiannavy, July 20, 2011; View post tag: Godavari View post tag: attempt View post tag: Navy Share this article View post tag: Foils View post tag: successfullycenter_img View post tag: piracy View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today INS Godavari Successfully Foils Piracy Attempt on Greek Ship View post tag: INS View post tag: ship INS Godavari Successfully Foils Piracy Attempt on Greek Ship July 20, 2011last_img read more
