Cancer.

We’ve found some treatments that have great results for some cancers. We have ideas about other treatments, some that may work broadly against many cancers. Those ideas were widely discussed at the 2016 CED Life Science Conference.

So it was with great anticipation that we awaited the presentation by Katherine Yang. She led off the closing lunch session with her talk “Developing Cellularly Active Inhibitors of CARM1 for a New Anti-Cancer Treatment.”

We all know it. The world needs twice as much food by 2050.

We all know it. But commodity prices are low. And that decreases available resources for innovation in food production, pointed out one attendee at Tuesday's Ag Biotech Workshop.

As I flip - make that scroll - through my notes pages from this week’s Internet Summit I am reminded of the many speakers who captured and held my attention for the entire two-day conference in downtown Raleigh. I was so impressed with the variety of the sessions as well as the marketing and tech professionals who delivered them. Some of my favorites included sessions by LinkedIn, Emma, Google, Salesforce, Ntara, NASCAR and Litmus to name only a few!
