Hello Tomorrow - The Future of Healthcare - SF - Dec. 15, 2016
The practice of medicine is going through a radical transformation phase towards a more individualized, informed, technological and data-driven care. This process is fueled by emerging technologies coming from various fields, including regenerative medicine, bioelectronics, gene editing, robotics, machine-learning and AI, nanotechnologies, and more, allowing the medical community to engineer human body functions in a more precise way than ever before.
One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century will be to foster these innovations and ensure a rapid and efficient translation from research to market, while allowing as many patients as possible to benefit from them. To do so, a continuous conversation between scientists, entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, governments and the general population is required.
During Hello Tomorrow San Francisco, our ambition is to highlight disruptive technologies that will shape the future of biomedicine. Our goal is to inspire and encourage the next generation of change-makers into fostering interdisciplinary collaborations to accelerate innovation in the field. At the same time, we want to take this opportunity to start the conversation about the ethical, legal, political and operational challenges we will have to address in the near future.
Join us on December 15th to hear inspiring talks, learn about the latest technologies in healthcare, new methodologies to improve patient care, and discuss the most pressing challenges we will have to tackle. Come, and meet an amazing diversity of like-minded attendees who will shape the future of healthcare with you!
