Deerfield has committed up to $130 million over the next 10 years to advance research at Dana-Farber and translate scientific discoveries with potential applications for patients. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210208005036/en/ Riverway Discoveries represents the first time Deerfield has created a second such partnership with one of its academic collaborators. In the first agreement, announced in 2018, Deerfield committed $80 million to create the Center for Protein Degradation at Dana-Farber. “Translational funding in biomedical research, when the promise of success is not obvious or guaranteed, can often be the engine that ensures innovative research moves forward, paving the way for important discoveries and new and better therapies,” said Laurie H. Glimcher, MD, president and CEO, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. “I am hopeful that this investment by Deerfield at Dana-Farber now will eventually help improve the lives of people with cancer everywhere.” “Supporting the innovation engines at institutions with world class science, investigators and leadership through financial, operational and translational expertise focused on projects with the potential to change lives can ultimately lead to the financial success of the institutions. This may be the most powerful way we can help support the healthcare ecosystem,” stated James Flynn, Deerfield managing partner. “Dana Farber is the perfect example of an institution with all the fundamentals where a flywheel of innovation can be supported with translational funding. We are pleased to be an innovation partner with now two separate collaborations focused on the most exciting and life saving translational projects.” Getting new therapeutics to patients is a driver in Dana-Farber’s research and drug discovery work. Building on Dana-Farber’s history and strong foundation of scientific leadership, innovation and drug development, this partnership with Deerfield and Riverway Discoveries will support the preclinical development, spurring commercialization to help advance the most promising research expeditiously. Advancing the drug pipeline forward more swiftly, enables new treatments to be developed more quickly, delivering on the ultimate goal of improving patient care and saving lives. “We are thrilled to collaborate again with Deerfield, as our previous partnership in protein degradation is enabling us to advance an exciting portfolio of discoveries. This new partnership will give scientists across Dana-Farber a new pathway to incubate cutting-edge science that will advance cancer care,” said Lesley Solomon, Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer at Dana-Farber. “Many promising innovations outgrow the laboratory as they require greater resources than an academic setting can typically provide. Dana-Farber’s partnership with Deerfield will catalyze important innovation growth.” Starting later this month, Dana-Farber researchers may submit proposals on projects for consideration by a Riverway Discoveries joint steering committee whose membership comprises equal scientific leadership representing Dana-Farber and Deerfield. Through Riverway Discoveries, Deerfield will provide funding and operational support for accepted projects.

The petitioner is ready to comply with the conditions that may be imposed on him. The Government pleader Advocate Vinayaka V S opposed the bail plea by saying that the petitioner has not made out ground for getting bail. The stay of the petitioner in judicial custody has no relevance for his release. The intentions of the petitioner are not good. He does not appear to be a law abiding citizen and has committed a heinous offence.

Salt Lake City Police(SALT LAKE CITY) — About two months before Utah college student MacKenzie Lueck went missing, the man now suspected of her murder asked a local contractor to build a soundproof room in his home with hooks drilled into concrete walls and a secret entrance with a thumb lock, the contractor claims.“Honestly? I don’t know what he wanted it for,” contractor Brian Wolf told ABC News’ Salt Lake City affiliate KTVX of suspect Ayoola Ajayi, 31.“But my gut was not normal. I mean, who needs a room with a thumb locks and hooks? In my opinion it was for something bad.”Wolf said he turned down the job and “got the hell out of there,” but remains haunted by the encounter.“It’s mind-blowing,” he told KTVX. “It’s like something out of a movie.”Attempts by ABC News to reach Wolf directly were not immediately successful.Wolf told local Fox affiliate WXIN that when he asked Ajayi why he wanted a secret room about the size of a walk-in closet built, Ajayi told him that his Mormon girlfriend would be visiting and she didn’t know he drinks alcohol and he wanted to hide the booze in the secret room. The contractor said that Ajayi told him he would pay whatever the cost to have the room built.He said he reported what he knew to police as soon as he saw the home on television news broadcasts.Ajayi, 31, was taken into custody at the home on Friday and charged with aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and desecration of a body, Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown said at a news conference.Charred tissue has been recovered that contains DNA consistent with samples found on Lueck’s belongings, Brown said.Lueck, 23, was last seen in the early hours of June 17. She landed at the Salt Lake City International Airport around 2 a.m., then at 2:40 a.m. she took a Lyft from the airport to Hatch Park in north Salt Lake City, police said.Ajayi admitted to police that he and Lueck texted about 6 a.m. on June 16, but said that they did not text after that time, said Brown. He told police “he did not know what Mackenzie looked like and denied having seen a photo or online profile of Mackenzie, despite having several photos of her and a profile photo,” Brown said.His home was searched on Wednesday night when he was considered a person of interest, police said.During that search, Ajayi’s neighbors told police they saw him using gasoline to burn something in his backyard on June 17 and 18, police said.It was not immediately clear whether Ajayi has retained a defense attorney.Meanwhile, a house cleaner who recently cleaned Ajayi’s home in Ogden said she was spooked by what she described as an extensive set of surveillance cameras set up in his bedroom.“The only thing that was odd to me was just how many cameras were in his house,” Tara Chatterton told KTVX. “I’ve cleaned several house and people have had cameras, but this one just stood out a little bit more because of how they were placed in the master bedroom.”She said Ajayi invited her to drink whiskey with him when she was cleaning the home, but that she turned him down.“I just felt uncomfortable — and not safe,” said Chatterton.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The government has introduced new Coronavirus regulations to parliament that set out the narrow circumstances under which evictions can take place.On 5 November, the Government said renters would be protected during the second national restrictions with no bailiff enforcement action, except for the most ‘egregious cases’ such as anti-social behavior.The statement also said that an exemption would be introduced for extreme pre-Covid rent arrears cases, which has have become law today.Called The Public Health (Coronavirus) (Protection from Eviction and Taking Control of Goods) (England) Regulations 2020, they reveal that tenants who have more than nine months’ rent arrears before March 24th this year can now be evicted, if a landlord or letting agent has a possession order already approved by the courts.Evictions hopeThe news gives many desperate landlords facing tenants who owe thousand of pounds in rent a glimmer of hope.But tenant must have built up nine months or more of rent arrears before the Covid pandemic began in late March, meaning many landlords will have already been waiting for 17 or 18 months before being allowed to evict.Paul Shamplina (pictured), founder of Landlord Action says: “This is very welcome news for those landlords whose tenants had stopped paying rent months prior to the pandemic and, until now, had been given carte blanche to continue living rent free.“However, there are concerns about how long it will take those landlords, whose arrears cases fall short of the Government’s definition of “substantial” i.e. nine months, to regain possession.“Put simply, landlords are not banks or the welfare state. In fact, banks get their money back, but landlords are expected to swallow these losses.”The other more standard reasons why evictions can proceed include trespass, a tenant’s death, a vacant property and anti-social behaviour.The National Residential Landlords Association says that this is a missed opportunity to help those tenants in financial difficulty due to Covid-19. It does nothing to address housing debt accrued since the beginning of the pandemic.Read the regulations in full.covid evictions bailiff evictions Paul Shamplina November 17, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 17th November 2020 at 9:38 amThis has just been a government problem deferment scheme onto the cash cow middle classes; they think of it like a landlord covid crisis contribution – no rent for 9 months+ and not much chance of ever getting it either.

Animal rights campaigner Mel Broughton has been given a ten-year jail sentence after being found guilty of plotting arson attacks against Oxford University buildings.A jury at Oxford Crown Court convicted the 50-year-old, from Northampton, of conspiracy to commit arson.He was also found guilty of owning an article with intent to destroy property.Judge Patrick Eccles QC passed a 10-year sentence, to be reduced by the two and a half years Broughton has already spent in custody. Broughton was originally convicted of the offences by a jury in February 2009, and successfully appealed his conviction in February this year. The Court of Appeal ordered that he should face a retrial, where he has been found guilty for a second time.The campaigner, who spearheaded animal welfare group Speak, was protesting about plans to build an animal research laboratory in Oxford, backed by the university, when he made homemade bombs out of water bottles and sparklers. One of them, placed on the roof of Queen’s College cricket pavilion in November 2006, ignited and caused nearly £14,000 damage to the building. A further two were planted at Templeton College in February 2007 but failed to go off. A University of Oxford spokesperson said: “The University has always accepted the rights of protesters to voice their objections within the law.“However, we will continue to work with all relevant authorities to protect staff and students from criminal activity of any kind.”
