Wired launches virtual conference Wired Health:Tech

Wired has announced a new conference, Wired Health:Tech, taking place on Tuesday 22 September as a virtual live broadcast. The conference explores the technological advances driving the future of patient care.

Curated by Wired’s editorial team, Wired Health:Tech will gather disruptors in health, medicine and science to investigate the direct impact of Covid-19, as well as the trends that the pandemic has accelerated. The programme covers artificial intelligence, telehealth, surgical robotics and next-gen systems, and addresses the need for smarter supply chains, remote friendly surgical systems and self-tracking software.

Wired has designed the conference content to flow through a live broadcast in 90-minute sessions – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. There are optional upgrades that give access to one-to-one chats with other attendees, and a choice of both roundtable and workshop, moderated by the Wired team, to enable networking, brainstorming and speaking with peers.

Wired has announced its six speakers for the virtual conference:

Jennifer Doudna, professor of Depts. of Molecular & Cell Biology and Chemistry, Innovative Genomics Institute at UC Berkeley

Eric Topol, founder and director, Scripps Research Translational Institute & Professor of Molecular Medicine, Scripps Research

Mark Slack, chief medical officer and co-founder, CMR Surgical

Heidi Larson, professor of Anthropology, Risk and Decision Science, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine & Director, The Vaccine Confidence Project

Pearse Keane, NIHR clinician scientist, Institute of Ophthalmology, UCL

Pravene Nath, global head for Digital Health Strategy, Roche
