Lantern Pharma Launches “Webinar Wednesdays” Featuring World-Class Physician Scientists & Key Opinion Leaders Discussing Critical Areas of Oncology Drug Development

  • Webinar Wednesdays is planned to be held on the last Wednesday of each month - starting on Wednesday, April 24th (at 1PM Eastern) with the first webinar on the increasing prevalence of non-small cell lung cancer in never smokers and how drug candidate LP-300 and the Harmonic Clinical Trial is looking to change these outcomes.
  • The second Webinar Wednesdays will focus on drug development needs in an area of critical patient need, pancreatic cancer, and how drug candidate LP-184 can address tumors with certain genomic and mutational profiles – this webinar is planned for Wednesday, May 29th (at 1pm Eastern).
  • The webinars will feature world-class collaborators and researchers, such as Dr. Joseph Treat and Dr. Igor Astsaturov of Fox Chase Cancer Center and Dr. Marc Chamberlain of Starlight Therapeutics.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lantern Pharma Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRN), an artificial intelligence (“AI”) company developing targeted and transformative cancer therapies using its proprietary RADR® AI and machine learning (“ML”) platform with multiple clinical-stage drug programs, announced today that – the company has launched Webinar Wednesdays, a webinar series that focuses on areas of high oncology drug development interest with leading physicians, scientists and Lantern collaborators in drug development and artificial intelligence. The series begins today, Wednesday, April 24, 2024, and is planned to be held on the last Wednesday of each month.

Each webinar will feature a presentation from a Lantern collaborator, advisor, or researchers followed by a live Q&A. These sessions provide a deep dive into the company’s research, collaborations, clinical trials and expected goals for the drug or AI development initiatives. The series kicks off today, Wednesday April 24, focusing on LP-300, a novel therapeutic for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer in never-smokers presented by Dr. Joseph Treat. Next month Dr. Igor Astsaturov will share his experience, and approach for the treatment of pancreatic cancer and other solid tumors and how synthetically lethal drug candidate, LP-184 fits into an increasingly biomarker driven paradigm for cancer treatments.

Future topics will include Starlight Therapeutics, a subsidiary of Lantern Pharma that focuses on central nervous system and brain cancers, and updates on RADAR®, Lantern’s proprietary AI and ML platform for oncology drug development and computational onco-biology at-scale.

Lantern Pharma (NASDAQ: LTRN) is an AI company transforming the cost, pace, and timeline of oncology drug discovery and development. Our proprietary AI and machine learning (ML) platform, RADR®, leverages over 60 billion oncology-focused data points and a library of 200+ advanced ML algorithms to help solve billion-dollar, real-world problems in oncology drug development. By harnessing the power of AI and with input from world-class scientific advisors and collaborators, we have accelerated the development of our growing pipeline of therapies that span multiple cancer indications, including both solid tumors and blood cancers and an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) program. On average, our newly developed drug programs have been advanced from initial AI insights to first-in-human clinical trials in 2-3 years and at approximately $1.0 - 2.5 million per program.

Our lead development programs include a Phase 2 clinical program and multiple Phase 1 clinical trials. We have also established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Starlight Therapeutics, to focus exclusively on the clinical execution of our promising therapies for CNS and brain cancers, many of which have no effective treatment options. Our AI-driven pipeline of innovative product candidates is estimated to have a combined annual market potential of over $15 billion USD and have the potential to provide life-changing therapies to hundreds of thousands of cancer patients across the world.
