     RESOURCES FOR CONSULTANTS & ENTREPRENEURS-AN UPDATE

    and

    CONTINUOUS FLOW REACTORS     

    Dr. John Newport - Chemventive

    Peter Joyce MS MBA - Sentinel Process Systems

    DATE & TIME: Wednesday, January 9th at The Cynwyd Club, Bala Cynwyd, PA

    Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30 PM

    Abstract:

    Finding work and having access to free or inexpensive resources are key imperatives for those of us in the consulting community. In this short presentation, John will provide an update to similar presentations he has given in the past. Members are encouraged to provide links to resources they have found useful so that they can be included in the update and subsequently published in the resources section on the CCN website.

    Flow chemistry represents the conversion of classical batch reactions to continuous operation. These reactions exploit the large difference in surface area to volume ratio of batch vs continuous and opens up new chemical pathways for development since flow reactions can be done at higher temperatures and pressures and avoid intermediate production of hazardous substances. Continuous systems have much smaller footprints and allow for capital cost savings of 25 to 50%. This talk will provide a general introduction to flow chemistry and provide examples of new installations and approaches.

    Joint Meeting- ACS Philadelphia Section & Chemical Consultants Network

    DISCOVERY OF A BLOCKBUSTER DRUG AND CHAN-LAM COUPLING REACTION

    Patrick Y.S. Lam – Distinguished Professor, Baruch S. Blumberg Institute

    DATE & TIME: Weds. February 13th at The Cynwyd Club, Bala Cynwyd, PA

    Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30 PM

    Abstract:

    Thrombosis is the leading cause of death in developed countries, generating a significant need for novel antithrombotics with an improved safety profile. Utilizing Structure-Based-Drug-Design tools, focused screening, and ADME-T innovations, BMS/DuPont discovered a novel class of potent, selective and orally bioavailable Factor Xa inhibitors culminating in Eliquis®/Apixaban, with current annual sales of >$5B. In 2015, the Eliquis discovery team received the ACS Heroes of Chemistry Award. During the optimization process, they also co-discovered the powerful Chan-Lam Coupling reaction of copper promoted C-element bond coupling via boronic acids, a complementary reaction to the Nobel prize-winning Suzuki-Miyaura C-C bond Coupling reaction. At the molecular recognition frontier, they pioneered the first rational use of halogen bonding in SBDD.

    Biography:

    Patrick Lam is a distinguished professor at Blumberg and also a drug discovery consultant. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Rochester (Dr. Louis Friedrich) and was a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA (Prof. Mike Jung and the late Prof. Don Cram, 1987 Nobel Laureate). He joined DuPont in 1984, moved to BMS in 2001, and retired in 2011 as a director. Patrick’s work led to eight clinical candidates and was the group leader/co-inventor responsible for the discovery of Eliquis®/Apixaban. He is internationally known as the co-discoverer of the powerful Chan-Lam Coupling Reaction. Patrick has 99 publications and 36 patents.
