The COVID crisis has emphasized our need for technology to live better, healthier, longer lives. Overcrowded hospitals, cancellations of elective surgeries, and the clear danger associated with face-to-face appointments have brough at-home and continuous health monitoring and treatment to the forefront.
While we all wish that it was not a deadly pandemic that pushed us ahead, many have taken the opportunity to innovate, regulators have given many emergency use approval, and user hesitancy has decreased dramatically.
New problems, including Long COVID, have emerged. ApplySci will bring a (limited) group of interdisciplinary thinkers together this April to try to solve them.
Join us at the Samberg Center and Terraces at MIT on September 30th, where researchers, investors, regulators, payors, pharma, biotech, device companies, health systems and startups will discuss deep tech for body and brain health.
ApplySci will have exclusive use of the 7th floor of the Samberg Center, and its large terraces. We will limit registration to 1/4 of the room’s capacity, and encourage attendees to be outside. Terrace doors will remain open, so please bring a sweater or jacket as we will have a breeze from the Charles, all day. Masks and proof of vaccine will be required by both MIT and ApplySci.
