Innovation Drives Biotech Week Boston

Innovation is driving our first ever Biotech Week Boston, where the heart, technology, and business of science converge. We just announced that two of our much-anticipated keynotes will speak. And we're partnering with one of the most respected tech news journals in the US - Xconomy for another first - our 1st ever Innovation Summit.

Keynote speakers announced this month are technology super-veteran, Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple Inc., and former big pharma research and development veteran, Dr. Toni Hoover, the director of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Biotech Week Boston is bringing together more than 3,000 of the world’s leading scientists, executives and technologists at the Boston Conference and Exhibition Center, Oct. 4-7, 2016.

Hoover will kick-off Biotech Week Boston day two with her keynote presentation, “Harnessing Science, Technology and Innovation to Improve Global Health,” on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 9:30 a.m. Wozniak will headline the day three festivities with a keynote Q&A, “Innovation and Customer Centricity,” taking place on Friday, Oct. 7, at 9:15 a.m. “I look forward to sharing insights on the future of technology and innovation at this event in Boston next month,” expressed Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder, Apple Inc. “I think the audience will be surprised by some of the stories I am excited to share.” These luminary thought leaders will join more than 350 international speakers flying in for the inaugural Biotech Week Boston conference.

Our Innovation Summit happens on October 7 and will feature world renowned researchers from Memorial Sloane-Kettering Cancer Center and RoosterBio as well as a panel discussion on: "Innovations and Technology to Drive Improvements in Healthcare Delivery".

“I am happy to welcome Biotech Week Boston and its thousands of attendees to the City of Boston,” says Boston Mayor Martin J.
