Partners Innovation is sponsoring the inaugural World Medical Innovation Forum April 27–29 in Boston. Each annual forum will focus on one clinical field. In 2015, that’s neuroscience, and several BWH leaders and experts in the field will be presenting, including BWHC President Betsy Nabel, MD, Antonio Chiocca, MD, PhD, Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, Alexandra Golby, MD, Dennis Selkoe, MD, Howard Weiner, MD, David Silbersweig, MD, Jeffrey Golden, MD, Nathalie Agar, PhD, Charles Czeisler, MD, PhD, and Clemens Scherzer, MD. Ann Romney, for whom the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at BWH is named, will also be speaking.
“This year, we’ll be exploring approaches to diagnosing and caring for neurologic and psychiatric disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, depression, schizophrenia, autism, stroke and sleep disorders,” said Chris Coburn, vice president of Partners Innovation. “We’ll also hear about game-changing diagnostic tools and therapeutic interventions, including genome editing, gene therapy, neuro-stimulation, neuro-regeneration, population management, neuro-imaging and novel biomarkers.”
