Leading entrepreneurs will share their stories in an interactive seminar series Jan. 17-20, 2012
New opportunities for products and services are arising rapidly along the frontier where the physical and the digital merge--where drugs are discovered in silico and computing enables radically new forms of technology and commerce.
A seminar series, Computational Science Ventures, will bring a group of entrepreneurs to Harvard Jan. 17-20, 2012 to share their experiences in this new realm. The series has been organized by Harvard alumnus, inventor and researcher Alexander Wissner-Gross, the first Institute Fellow at IACS.
Wissner-Gross will moderate sessions featuring four guest speakers:
- Tuesday, Jan. 17: Dean Kamen, founder and president of DEKA Research & Development Corporation
- Wednesday, Jan. 18: Maria Lopez-Bresnahan, Vice President and Global Head for Medical and Scientific Affairs at Pharmanet/i3
- Thursday, Jan. 19: Luke Burns, Principal at Ascent Venture Partners
- Friday, Jan. 20: Stephen Wolfram, Founder and CEO, Wolfram Research
The series is organized as a mini-course. There is no charge, but advance registration is required. Students are encouraged to register for multiple sessions to receive readings and special opportunities to meet the speakers.
