This year’s event features keynote speaker Andrew Hessel, a futurist and catalyst in biological technologies. Mr. Hessel’s career has been focused on helping industry, academics and authorities better understand the rapid changes happening in life science. He is a Distinguished Researcher with Autodesk Inc. in its San Francisco-based Life Sciences group, which is creating software tools for molecular and living systems.

He is also the co-founder of Humane Genomics, which is developing virus-based therapies for cancer, starting with dogs.

Mr. Hessel will lead a discussion focused on the following topics:

  • How will the changes in genetic technologies affect government, business or investments?
  • What impact will these technologies have on intellectual property, regulations or policy?
  • How can ones organization or region adapt to keep pace with biological innovation?

Following Andrew’s speech a panel of notable industry leaders will take the stage moderated by Dr. Stephen Gately, president and CEO of TD2, to discuss the future of health care innovation on the Cure Corridor. Participating panelists include:

  • Dr. Caroline Carney, chief medical officer at Magellan Healthcare;

  • Dr. Heather M. Ross, clinical assistant professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and College of Nursing and Health Innovation, and research scientist in the Global Security Initiative at Arizona State University;
  • Dr. Sunil Sharma, chief of translational oncology and drug development at the HonorHealth Research Institute.

The event is designed to bring awareness to the many important developments in the bio-life science and health care industries in Scottsdale and across the nation.
