About the Conference

For our upcoming meeting in November we're reuniting with the HBS Healthcare Alumni Association in Cambridge, MA, at the 176th Annual HBS Healthcare Alumni Conference - November 10-11, 2016.  A current snapshot of the agenda is on our website:  http://www.ypohealthcare.comlisted below.   Topics include Personalized Medicine, Microbiome, Healthcare & the Internet of Everything, Drug Pricing & Reimbursement, Corporate Venture Capital, and Health Innovation at Harvard.  Presenters and panelists include senior executives from Merck, Pfizer, Roche Diagnostics, IBM Watson, GE Healthcare, Intel Life & Science, Sanofi Ventures, Medtronic Ventures, and Google Ventures.

For the YPO Healthcare Industry Network, we have a members-only breakfast and forum on the morning of November 10.  Because this part of the program is restricted to members of YPO, we ask that your guests plan on joining the HBS people at their morning reception at 10:00am.  On Thursday evening, we’ll have a reception and dinner exclusively for YPOers and guests at the same time as the HBSHAA Awards Dinner.

Because this Conference delivers much more programming time and resources (meals, etc.) than our usual 24-hour meeting format, and because HBSHAA has increased our costs over last year, the pricing has increased somewhat.  There’s also a nominal surcharge for those HCIN members who prepaid in the Spring of 2016.  These charges are detailed in the schedule below.  Note that there is a price break for “Early Birds”, and the Early Bird deadline is October 7th.

We have heard from a few members that they are only able to attend the first day of this two-day event.  Please note that there is slightly reduced pricing for Thursday only for both Members and Guests.  Again the deadline for Early Bird pricing is October 7th.

Personalized Medicine & Diagnostics

The sequencing of the human genome and deeper understanding of disease at the molecular level is enabling innovations across a number of disease areas, especially in oncology. Our panelists represent innovative biopharma companies that have put this personalized medicine into practice with the launch of novel therapeutics that target specific mutations and require a companion diagnostic to target patients who may benefit from treatment. In this session, we will discuss the evolution of personalized medicine and the opportunities and challenges of developing these therapies both in the US and internationally.
