Conference Description

The 5th Early-Stage Life Sciences Technology Conference is an opportunity for research institutions and recently formed Massachusetts companies to present their life sciences technologies to an audience of angel investors, venture capitalists and corporate investors.

This conference highlights technologies that are emerging from the research labs and are the building blocks for new companies and products. Today’s presenters will describe to you a broad range of discoveries that could each make a significant difference in healthcare. The technologies range from innovative catheters for premature infants, to computational models to predict patient therapy response, and new drug candidates.

Today’s conference will also feature a panel discussion on funding for early stage life sciences companies. Our panel will feature three speakers who, in spite of the difficult economy, are each continuing to invest in very early stage companies. Our fourth speaker is the COO and co-founder of Claros, a company that presented at our first Early Stage Life Sciences Conference and has successfully raised new capital. Our moderator is Bob Buderi, the editor of Xconomy, who has a broad view of the life sciences clusters in the three regions in which he publishes – Massachusetts, San Diego and Seattle.
