“High Tech in Biotech & Devices” Event
11/20/2009

As engineers with MBAs working in biotech, we are personally fascinated and inspired by the convergence of info tech, biotech, nanotech, communications, devices, and healthcare. This phenomenon is not new; in fact, it has been written about for nearly three decades. But what is occurring today has the promise of revolutionizing modern healthcare and extending it to millions more people around the world.
We recently had the privilege of co-hosting a discussion among the leaders of some of the most innovative firms in this space including Complete Genomics, Proteus Biomedical, NeuroPace, and Canaan Partners. From chips on pills that talk to computers, to ultra-fast genome sequencing, to remote monitoring and control of electrodes implanted in the brain, we heard how these companies are developing the markets and business models for their products, what challenges they face, and, ultimately, how patients, physicians and investors will benefit.
