In the past ten years, we’ve witnessed some extraordinary advances in global human health. HIV/AIDS is no longer the death sentence that it once was, we now have vaccines that prevent certain cancers, and we’ve even cured Hepatitis C. But other health threats – Alzheimer’s, diabetes and many rare diseases – are still without cures or even treatments.
Please join us for an informed discussion about the research and development process, the pathway to new medical breakthroughs and discoveries, the innovation ecosystem, and the risks to the continued advancement of global human health and future treatments and cures for some of the world’s most deadly diseases.
Our distinguished speakers include:
James Baker, MD Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine, Medical School and Biomedical Engineering, University of Michigan
Brandi Simpson Chief Executive Officer, Navigen, Inc.
Bill Newell Chief Executive Officer, Sutro Biopharma, and
Eric Gascho Vice President, Policy and Government Affairs, National Health Council
