Lee McCracken, CEO, Gensignia Life Sciences, Inc.

GenSignia, Inc. was founded in 2011, based on leading academic research, to develop new molecular diagnostic techniques for the earlier detection of cancers. A privately-held company, its discoveries show that it is possible to detect signatures of cancer in blood through the identification of tiny nucleic acid fragments called miRNAS. Based on promising data, the company intends to build strong clinical test platform that will enable earlier diagnosis, and therefore improve survivability, of the most prevalent, lethal cancers, such as lung cancer.
Headquartered in San Diego, California, Trovagene is developing its patented technology for the detection of transrenal DNA and RNA, short nucleic acid fragments, originating from normal and diseased cell death that cross the kidney barrier and can be detected in urine. Trovagene has a strong patent position as it relates to transrenal molecular testing and has U.S. and European patent applications and issued patents that cover testing for HPV and other infectious
diseases, cancer, transplantation, prenatal and genetic testing.

Anton C. Mauve, Managing Director

West African Minerals Corporation (WAFM) is an AIM-listed iron ore mining and exploration group with one of the largest land positions in Cameroon considered prospective for high-tonnage, hematite-rich direct shipping ore (DSO). Through its wholly-owned subsidiary CMC SA, WAFM owns 100% interest in six exploration permits spanning the coastal vicinity of the deep water port of Kribi.
A large-scale exploration programme is currently underway to outline the near-term potential of WAFM’s coastal permits towards production in relatively short time and at low cost, in addition to establishing large volume resources close to the proposed south Cameroon rail corridor. The regional prospectivity of southern Cameroon as the next major iron ore frontier is exemplified by increasing exploration activity and investment by global majors and diversified mining companies.
