Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

Edwin Land and Polaroid Book - Presentation and signing
As the speaker at the April New England Model Engineering Society meeting, author Ron Fierstein will provide us with a unique view of Polaroid, Land, and a number of critical inventions from the mid-twentieth century.  The meeting starts at 7 PM on Thursday, April 2, 2015 in the auditorium at the Waltham Public Library.  Mr. Fierstein will sign books after his talk (books will be available for purchase).  The public is welcome. Author Ron Fierstein new book, “A Triumph of Genius: Edwin Land, Polaroid, and the Kodak Patent War” takes the reader through the spectacular life of Edwin Land, breakthrough inventor. At the time of his death, he stood third on the list of our most prolific inventors, behind only Thomas Edison and one of Edison’s colleagues. Land’s most famous achievement, of course, was the creation of a revolutionary film and camera system that could produce a photographic print moments after the picture was taken. The book takes you behind the scenes of his discoveries, his triumphs, and also the defeats of this reclusive genius.  You'll learn details of Land’s involvement over four decades with top-secret U.S. military intelligence efforts during World War II and through the Cold War in the service of seven American presidents. As a young attorney, Ron Fierstein worked extensively with Edwin Land during the epic Polaroid v Kodak patent litigation, learning the detailed history of Polaroid directly from Land himself, and studying every aspect of the Land’s inventions through the years.  Now, several decades later, Ron has written a riveting biography of Land and Polaroid.  Join us April 2nd to hear him tell us Edwin Land’s story.

Panel Participants: 

Presenting Companies:

Akrivis Technologies is a privately held biopharmaceutical company committed to the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of serious and life-threatening diseases based on its patented Z-TECTTM technology platform. Z-TECTTM is in essence a proprietary and extremely versatile targeted carrier system that provides very high signal amplification for in vitro and in vivo (imaging) detection applications with high signal:noise ratios, but also for the pre-targeted delivery of high drug payloads specifically to targeted biomarkers (much like an ADC, Antibody-Drug Conjugate, but with improved efficacy and safety profiles). Akrivis’ focus for 2015 is to commercialize Z-TECT™-based best-in-class products for ultrasensitive in vitro detection (secondary and primary assays) and high-resolution in vivo imaging first for research-use-only (RUO) and then for clinical diagnostics. Akrivis is also engaged with pharmaceutical companies (and with an on-going contract with the NCI, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and GLG Pharma) to evaluate its technology platform for the sequentially targeted delivery of high drug payloads to tumor cells.

 

BIOARRAY is developing diagnostic tests to match a breast cancer patient with the right drug the first time. BIOARRAY’s lead test has been shown to reduce ineffective treatments by over 50% in proof of concept clinical studies. Marcia will talk about how the company is developing the technology from discovery to product development stage leveraging the study of cancer in reverse, and the experience of partners.

BIOARRAY is a recipient of Avon Foundation for Women and Connecticut Innovations funds. BIOARRAY was nominated the “Most Promising Life Science Product” by Connecticut Technology Council and is a MassChallenge Accelerator Winner.

 

Cellanyx Diagnostics is developing a proprietary living cell phenotypic cancer diagnostic platform to aid clinical decision making. The company’s unique ‘biopsy-on-a-chip’ methodology provides quantitative, actionable assessments of individual cancer cells in biopsy samples using multiple phenotypic biochemical and biophysical markers of tumor aggressiveness and metastatic potential.

Cellanyx has demonstrated clinical proof-of-concept with its lead product in development, a diagnostic to improve risk stratification in men with low and intermediate grade prostate cancer and thereby reduce overtreatment.

 

GLG Pharma is a Florida biotechnology company developing a series of patented inhibitors of activated Signal Transducer and Activators of Transcription 3 (p-STAT3) licensed from the Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, Tampa FL. P-STAT3 inhibitors are a new generation of targeted therapies. Four inhibitors have been selected for development and are in advanced preclinical stage.

GLG Pharma’s therapeutics will treat proliferative diseases; plus nearly all cancers and reach unmet needs in the multi-billion dollar ($75BB by 2012) anti-cancer market with greater efficacy and fewer side effects than existing therapies. Our newest discovery is treatment of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease in which our product, GLG-302 and we suspect other products in development will significantly benefit this patient population of about 100,000+ patients.


Sabik Medical is a biotech company developing a new generation of radiopharmaceuticals to image and treat serious cancers. The initial company focus is on prostate cancer, where there is currently no adequate imaging, and no settled treatment protocol at diagnosis. The company’s compounds are based on a platform technology known as Enzyme Mediated Imaging and Therapy (EMIT).  EMIT technology enables Sabik to design compounds that selectively deliver radioactively-labeled small molecule payloads to tumors by exploiting specific hydrolytic enzymes that are present in unusually high concentrations on the surface of certain tumor tissues.  EMIT compounds are theragnostic agents that can be used for both imaging and therapy.
