Create. Imagine. Solve. HUBweek is a week long gathering to celebrate the big ideas and bold solutions that emerge from the people, openness, and intellectual energy found in Greater Boston. From arts and culture to technology and cutting-edge medicine, Boston is harnessing curiosity to create the future. On October 7, George Church, Wyss Core Faculty member and Isaac Kohane, Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Professor of Pediatrics, at Harvard Medical School will participate in a spirited conversation about why precision medicine matters, who will have access to it, who’s going to pay for it, and how it may affect patient privacy. Following the moderated discussion, Church and Kohane will take questions from the audience.
