Panels & Sessions

European Startups: Undervalued opportunities for US Investors?!
July 26th, 2022 | 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Cross-border investments from US-based VCs in European startups have continuously increased over the past years. In 2021, every 5th European deal had at least one U.S. investor on board, up from 17% in 2020 and 15% in 2019. Investors and entrepreneurs on this panel will discuss the unique challenges and opportunities that result from such cross-board deals and provide tips on how to best find and attract the right partners in oversea.

Speakers:  Kelly De Ponte, Sebastien Latapie, William (Bill) Hyun

Moderator: Angus McQuilken

The future of AI in health care.
July 26th, 2022 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Almost everyone considers AI applications in health care to become a game changer with major benefits on patient treatments and cost structures. Yet, regulatory approval and education of users such as physicians to trust algorithms remain challenging. In this panel we review how large-cap and smaller startups successfully overcame some of these hurdles and discuss what is needed over the next 5 years to realize more of the value that AI can offer to the health care system.

Upscaling & manufacturing in Cell & Gene Therapies Current challenges and solutions.
July 26th, 2022 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Cell & Gene Therapies are considered to be the next big wave in medicine. Unlike classical pharmaceuticals, these therapies heavily depend on the quality of the manufacturing process. In addition, the short shelf life of the final products makes collecting data on safety and potency a time-critical challenge. Together with industry leaders and innovative life science tools companies, we will discuss new solutions and open gaps that need to be filled to make CGTs broadly accessible.

Speakers: Bryan Poltilove

Moderator: Volker Gatterdam

Establishing a new diagnostics gold standard in biomarkers.
July 26th, 2022 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The importance of clinical involvement in launching novel diagnostics to change the standard of care. Novel diagnostic methods have the potential to change the standard of care in healthcare. In this fireside chat we review how Cardiac troponin (cTn) has become an essential part of diagnosing myocardial infarction (MI) since testing for it was introduced in the 1990s and what the lessons are for launching similar diagnostic methods.

Post-merger integrations in life sciences. The good, the bad, the ugly.
July 27th, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Many transactions in the diagnostics & tools space are structured with a significant part of the compensation being linked to future milestones. Yet, with more than half of mergers and acquisitions failing or underperforming, it is important to learn how to increase chances for success. Bringing together two organization, each with its own processes, culture, and management, is complex and requires full attention before and after the transaction. We learn from buyers, and entrepreneurs what to look out for and what mistakes to avoid.

Digital health funding: Staying the course in choppy waters.
July 27th, 2022 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

How can an organization know that short-term price increases are fair and in line with expectations? How can companies prepare to deal with the long-term consequences of inflationary markets? No one can perfectly predict the next set of inflationary pressures, but it’s reasonable to assume that they’ll return eventually. Leaders can prepare now to minimize the impact when that day arrives.

The current state and the future of single cell tools and diagnostics.
July 27th, 2022 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Single-cell molecular tools have been developed at an incredible pace over the last five years as sequencing costs continue to drop and numerous molecular assays have been coupled to sequencing readouts. This rapid period of technological development has facilitated the delineation of individual molecular characteristics including the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and proteome of individual cells, leading to an unprecedented resolution of the molecular networks governing complex biological systems.
