BIO to Host Google+ Hangout with David Brancaccio

March 24, 2014
Join us for a preview discussion with David Brancaccio, host of American Public Media’s Marketplace Morning Report and Scientific American Worldview editors on March 25, 11AM-12PM, as we explore the main themes of this year's Scorecard edition – The Cost & Benefits of Innovation.

Editors will also discuss:

  • Innovation's true "value proposition" and the ways in which investing in science has multilayered societal returns;

  • The biggest issues in biotech that continue to "flatten" the world and create common missions among countries; and

  • The ever-changing landscape of international innovation and the ways government and industry can best support life science development

Guest Speakers will include Yali Friedman, Lead Editorial Consultant & Scorecard Editor, Scientific American Worldview, Mike May, Editorial Director, Scientific American Worldview and David Brancaccio, host of American Public Media's Marketplace Morning Report (and moderator of the Scientific American Worldview Super Session at the 2014 BIO International Convention).
