Singularity University (SU), a global community with a mission to educate, inspire, and empower leaders to apply exponential technologies to address humanity’s grand challenges today announced that the world’s experts in healthcare, technology, biopharma, and more will convene for the ninth annual Exponential Medicine conference, Nov. 4-7 at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego.
Over 70 world-class Faculty, 50+ innovative startups, and 500+ select innovators will converge from every facet of healthcare and biomedicine for a unique, immersive four-day program to explore and leverage the convergence of fast-moving technologies to help catalyze the future of health and medicine.
“Exponential Medicine brings together an extraordinary community of innovative leaders for a deep cross-disciplinary dive into the cutting-edge future of health care and the technologies shaping prevention, diagnosis, and therapy at a global level,” said Dr. Daniel Kraft, Faculty Chair of Medicine at Singularity University and founder of Exponential Medicine. “Insights, connections, and collaborations sparked at Exponential Medicine have catalyzed many new approaches that go on to have real impact on the world.”
Participants will be challenged to think bigger and, over four days, will learn about and discuss the current and future implications of evolving and innovative technologies, from artificial intelligence, digital health and virtual reality to genomics, blockchain and regenerative medicine. Startups challenging the boundaries of medicine will be featured in the Innovation Lab, where participants can take part in hands-on technology demonstrations and the MEDY startup competition.
“There is a radical transformation underway in our healthcare system as we move from a focus on treating the sick to a focus on wellness and overall well-being,” said Doug Beaudoin, Vice Chairman US & Global Life Sciences & Health Care Industry Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “While disease will never be completely eliminated, through science, data, and technology, we will be able to identify it earlier, intervene proactively, and better understand its progression to help consumers more effectively and actively sustain their well-being. Deloitte is proud to once again be the Platinum Sponsor of Exponential Medicine, where so many innovative leaders gather to discuss and realize this vision of the future of health.”
