MassBio Innovation Week
December 6, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us for our first ever Innovation Week! Each day of Innovation Week we will showcase emerging companies or academic research that could have a transformational impact on all patients. Our goal is to use our global platform to connect these changemakers to an audience of prospective partners, investors, stakeholders, and other ecosystem leaders that can help them take the next step with their science.
If you are a founder or researcher who is interested in being featured and are working in the oncology, infectious disease, cardiovascular and metabolic disease, rare disease, or neuroscience therapeutic areas, we encourage you to apply to be a featured participant.
Specifically, we plan to highlight founders and researchers:
- From traditionally under-represented backgrounds in the industry – including people of color, women, the LGBTQIA+ community, and people with disabilities
- Who are working towards greater health equity, clinical diversity, and/or who are making an impact in underserved disease areas or diseases that adversely affect underrepresented communities
We will feature just five companies or researchers each day of the week (Monday, Dec 5, 2022: Oncology, Tuesday, Dec 6 2022: Infectious Diseases (specifically, AMR), Wednesday, Dec 7, 2022: Cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and Rare Diseases, Thursday, Dec 8, 2022: Neuroscience). Each founder will have 20 minutes to present, with 5 minutes of audience Q&A following their presentation; presentations will happen live and via Zoom webinar each afternoon EST.
Featured speakers include Dr. Erin Duffy, Chief of Research & Development of CARB-X
