The Virtual event will be broadcast from New York City and will feature panels on The Conference will present the latest research findings on how testing can control the spread. It will present promising technologies seeking strategic partners to accelerate their development. Presenting firms will include those which received NIH Funding as part of the RADx “Shark Tank” competition which has awarded $437 million in contracts to the…

If businesses are not open and kids not in school, we are losing the war against COVID. A war we could and should be winning.  Science and technology can defeat this invader that is destroying the global economy and taking and shattering millions of lives.

Instead we are holding it back.  Winning is not complex and it is NOT just a vaccine.  To rely primarily on vaccines is simply foolish and could be a big mistake. Vaccines should be pursued full force, but there is no certainty any will be effective…

DRAFT Addressing COVID-19 is the most significant work being done in the world today. Scientists and entrepreneurs are developing projects to help return the world to some level of normalcy.

The Altru Impact Investment Club  –  A group of accredited Investors who want to…

The Thesis:  A tremendous wealth of innovative science is occurring at Universities and among individual scientists and inventors. If such innovation could be matched with other groups working on similar problems and projects, great advances and even breakthroughs could be accelerated. Furthermore if such breakthroughs could be matched with commercialization strategies, solutions  to complex challenges like pandemics and climate change could be found.  But today no such collaborative model exists broadly. Scientists do collaborate but only through their own initiatives and our institutions are not designed to reward such collaboration. In fact, the incentive systems currently in place discourage it.…
