SEPTEMBER 17 SEP 17
The collision of biology and technology has sparked a revolution. An explosion of new knowledge about how the human body works, combined with the power of information, is delivering astonishing benefits that are transforming life, health, and the human condition.
Hear three biomedical revolutionaries talk about their work and this turning point in human health. Then, after a lively Q&A session, enjoy dinner with dozens of Stanford scientists, School of Medicine Dean Lloyd B. Minor, MD, and Stanford Health Care CEO David Entwistle.

Detecting Disease Early
Aviation does it—advanced, constant monitoring of jet engines to diagnose and intervene before catastrophe happens. Now health care is harnessing the power of technology and advances in biology to find disease at its earliest, most curable stages.
Assistant Professor of Neurology
Unlocking the Mysteries of Malignancy
Work at the intersection of neuroscience and patient care is leading to disruptive new ideas about brain plasticity and how malignancies arise—and changing the way we think about other diseases as well.
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Building Human Brain Circuits in a Dish
Can’t get inside a human brain to figure out what’s causing disease? Tiny replicas of human brain tissue grown in a lab from a patient’s stem cells are revolutionizing our approach to psychiatric and neurological conditions.
