The Fall Senior Executives Conference is one of our semi-annual meetings designed for member company C-suite executives, presidents and their senior executive teams. Each meeting focuses on emerging trends and business strategies and offers great insights and advice, along with many opportunities for dialogue with other senior executive attendees.

Past meetings have focused on proteomics, artificial intelligence, immunology, the transformation of healthcare and trends in pharma. We include a global economic and financial outlook to complement each topical program.

This year's conference will focus on “Innovations in Multi-omics”, exploring the integration of diverse biological data sets such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and more. This interdisciplinary approach offers invaluable insights into complex biological systems, revolutionizing personalized medicine, drug discovery, and diagnostics.

Monday, September 30
