Newsletter Fall 2019 note from the CEO


Dear Friends of Kinexum,

This Fall 2019 edition of Kinexions, the Kinexum newsletter, features just two exceptional articles:

(1) the third and final installment of a comprehensive series on artificial pancreas device systems, by Prasad Palthur, PhD, of Innoneo Health Technologies (here are links for his first and second installments); and


(2) the amazing and moving autobiographical tale by Kinexum’s clinical development consultant, Mustafa Noor, MD, on his journey arriving as an Afghan refugee to America.


Kinexum consultants co-authored a recent Public Policy & Aging Report article on framing a regulatory pathway for medicines that target aging using a healthspan indication.


Zan and I were interviewed earlier this month by Rich Bendis, President and CEO of BioHealth Innovation, about Kinexum and our Targeting Metabesity 2019 conference. Listen to the podcast here.  


We recently returned from the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Barcelona, where Zan chaired the session and gave a talk on diabetes digital apps.


Our Targeting Metabesity 2019 conference is now less than a month away. This unique and important conference will be at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC on October 15-16, 2019. The stellar speakers roster includes Janet Woodcock and Susan Mayne (CDER and CFSAN Directors at FDA), Richard Hodes and Gary Gibbons (NIA and NHLBI Directors at NIH), top researchers in geroscience and chronic diseases, leaders from established and hot emerging companies, venture capital and other stakeholders. Please join us for a silo-busting conversation on shifting focus from acute to chronic diseases, treatment to prevention, and individual diseases to extension of healthy lifespan.Registerhere. Researchers can still submit abstracts by September 30.


Kinexum will also be participating in the program of several conferences this coming quarter, including the Diabetes Technology Meeting in Bethesda in November and the Cardiovascular Clinical Trialists Forum in Washington, DC in December. Let us know if you will be at one of these conferences—would hope to see you!
Happy reading, and wishing you a healthy, productive fall season!
