FutureMed Executive Program at Singularity University Looks at Impact of Technology on the Future of Health and Biomedicine

Moffett Field, CA | Posted on March 22nd, 2011

Few fields have the potential to evolve more dramatically through disruptive, exponential technologies than healthcare. Low cost genomic sequencing and proteomics, ever-faster and higher-resolution imaging, artificial intelligence, telemedicine, stem cells, robotic surgery, smaller and more capable implantable and wearable devices, ubiquitous mobile applications, nanotechnology and synthetic biology -- these and other game-changing technologies and innovations have tremendous implications for the medicine, healthcare and the biomedical industry in the decade ahead, including the potential enablement of better, more accessible care at lower costs.

The five-day intensive FutureMed program includes lectures, workshops and site visits that are led by notable faculty from the fields of medicine, biotechnology and innovation. CME credit is available for clinicians. Faculty for the May program are being announced today. A full list is on the FutureMed web site (futuremed2011.com/futuremed-faculty).

"We're fortunate to have at FutureMed truly world-class innovators and thought leading faculty, across multiple disciplines," said Dr. Daniel Kraft, a Stanford and Harvard trained physician-scientist who chairs the Medicine track for Singularity University.

FutureMed faculty include:

-Peter Diamandis MD, Chairman of the X-PRIZE and co-founder of Singularity University
-Tim O'Reilly, Founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media
-Dean Ornish MD, Founder and President, Preventative Medicine Research Institute
-Thomas Goetz MPH, Executive Editor WIRED, Author of 'The Decision Tree'
-Dan Barry MD PhD, 3 time Space Shuttle NASA Astronaut and Roboticist
-Catherine Mohr MD, Director of Medical Research, Intuitive Surgical
-David Ewing Duncan, Author of 'Experimental Man,' and the 'Personalized Medicine Manifesto'
-Randy Scott PhD, Founder and Chairman of Genomic Health
-Roni Zeiger MD, Chief Health Strategist, Google
-Christopher Longhurst MD, Chief Information Officer for Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford Medical School
-Michael Gillam MD, Director of the Microsoft Medical Media at Microsoft Health
-Allan May, CEO of Life Sciences Angels
