SPEECH AT BIOGEN CONFERENCE-SCIENCE FICTION INSPIRING SCIENCE FACT IN MEDICINE

In December 2015, I was invited to Cambridge Massachusetts to be a keynote speaker at Biogen’s Annual Technology Innovation Symposium: Medicines of the Future. As an outsider to the medical and scientific community, this was a unique challenge to me–how can I create a compelling, and engaging presentation to a room full of doctors and scientists about something relevant to them and me? I embarked on an investigation of recent cutting edge medical innovations have roots in science fiction films and literature. A topic near and dear to me and my company Perception’s heart.

Enjoy my speech.
