Convergence Forum West: The Life Sciences Leaders Forum

From the event organizers:

Convergence Forum West explores the increasing overlaps and interactions between the worlds of biotech, pharma, medical devices, and the Internet. It’s only for founders, CEOs, VC partners, and senior executives. This year, we’ll hear from Mark Barrett of J&J and Mike McCully of Elan about how and where they look for innovation… about the strategies of investors like Thong Le of WRF Capital and Kurt von Emster of venBio…what it takes for new diagnostics to be adopted for managing chronic diseases, with William Hagstrom of Crescendo Bioscience…and how consumers are using mobile devices to take control of their health in new ways, from entrepreneurs like Sonny Vu and Halle Tecco of Rock Health. Additional information can be found at or request an invitation at
