Congratulations to John Lewis and Nanostics for winning an entry into the highly competitive and prestigious Falling Walls Venture Conference in Berlin, November 8-9, 2018!
Five presenters pitched their healthcare-related ideas and innovations to a panel of tech and business-savvy judges and a large audience on Aug 29, 2018, at the University of Alberta in a high-stakes “TEDTalk” meets “Dragon’s Den” style. The competition was tough but John Lewis edged out the fellow contenders to win a chance to pitch a 5-minute talk on Nanostics’ high-accuracy prostate cancer diagnostic reflex test: ClarityDX Prostate.
John talked with Mark Connolly from the CBC Edmonton Morning show on September 4 about the Falling Walls competition and what he is preparing for this November.
Good luck to John Lewis at the Falling Walls Finale in Berlin!

Inspiring support for prostate cancer research at the 2015 CCI Golf Classic
Members of the APCaRI team felt very fortunate yesterday to participate in the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s 27th Annual Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic – a wonderful event that has raised more than $10 million to pioneer revolutionary projects in support of patients at Alberta’s own Cross Cancer Institute and beyond. And the event yesterday was truly inspiring for me and our team! Thanks to the kindness and overwhelming generosity of the many sponsors and attendees, and the spectacular efforts of MC and auctioneer Danny Hooper, more than $1.1M was raised to support cutting edge research into cancer metastasis and the clinical study of our new blood and urine tests for aggressive prostate cancer.
Heartfelt thanks to the amazing volunteers, the organizing committee, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, and all of the participants and donors who attended the event!
