Xconomy Forum: Tomorrow’s Biotech–Innovators and Innovations

San Diego is home to a dazzling array of today’s most successful biotech inventors, companies, and technologies. But who are the innovators and what are the innovations that will carry this region’s leadership in life sciences forward in the years to come? Which new advances will help transform the way we treat and prevent disease? And how is the region working with innovators from outside San Diego to stay at the forefront of innovation and commercial success? Through stellar keynotes, case studies, panel discussion, and networking, Xconomy will bring to the forefront San Diego’s newest generation of biotech executives, entrepreneurs, and startups, as well as visionary leaders from outside the region, to look at the future of biotech innovation in our area—and beyond.
