Oncoheroes Launch
Childhood cancers are complex, rare diseases for which only four specific drugs have been approved in the last 40 years. Despite this statistic, there are multiple assets in biopharma companies and academic research centers that hold real potential to cure several types of childhood cancer.

Oncoheroes is a ground-breaking biotech company exclusively focused on the discovery and development of better drugs for children and adolescents with cancer.

Co-founded by two dads touched by childhood cancer, Oncoheroes intends to become the global leader in delivering new pediatric oncology drugs taking advantage of the momentum in pediatric cancer and rare diseases.

Ricardo Garcia (CEO) and Cesare Spadoni (COO) will be presenting Oncoheroes and answering audience questions during our launching webinar.

Whether you have been touched by childhood cancer, or are a cancer foundation, a cancer researcher, an industry professional or a life-science investor, and want to boost new therapies for young cancer patients, please join our informative session to know more about what we do and how you can get involved.

Oct 15, 2019 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Speakers

Ricardo Garcia
Founder & Chief Executive Officer @Oncoheroes Biosciences Inc
Ricardo is a natural-born entrepreneur. Passionate about taking on new challenges and with a background in computer engineering and management and business administration, he sold his first company at the age of 22. This led to the creation and development of various companies, predominantly in the field of technology with a strong bent towards innovation. His son Richi’s brain tumor diagnosis in 2011 forced him to abandon all his plans and move to Boston to save his life. Thankfully that battle has been won, but the fight continues. Ricardo discovered the obstacles that existed, as well as the lack of provision and support in this field through his own personal experience, and decided to create the Richi Childhood Cancer Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established in the US and with links around the world.
