Innovation Bioscience: Deep Dives in Entrepreneurship – Technology, Innovation, and Aging Well

  • Workbar Cambridge 45 Prospect Street Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)

Innovation Bioscience is a training and incubation initiative focused on bridging the gap between biomedical research and healthcare need. The Deep Dives in Entrepreneurship series provide an opportunity to learn about upcoming training opportunities as well as learn from and connect with the vibrant start-up community of Greater Boston. This session of Deep Dives in Entrepreneurship will focus on Innovation, Technology, and Aging Well. Over the past several years we have started to look upon aging as a chronic disease that if properly managed could have less of an impact on overall quality of life as we grow older. As the population of Americans over the age of 65 continues to grow we see an opportunity for biomedical professionals to make a significant impact on aging through leveraging their domain expertise and entrepreneurial training.
