Festival of Genomics Boston - October 2017, Boston Convention Center

.

In The Loop

An invigorating new format for the Festival  that is powered by you, our rich and varied festival crowd. These 90 minute sessions focus on group discussions and solution generation for some of the field’s most pressing questions. This is a playground for decision makers and creative thinkers alike to flip problems on their heads and affect change in the community.

 

Why attend:

Talks and panel discussions can be incredibly valuable but focussed conversations can be a uniquely powerful way of learning and identifying actions for progress. Join our 4 expert ‘Loop Leaders’ and briefly hear their take on an issue and the challenges they face before they join you in small groups to explore in conversation. Our Loop leaders will then reconvene up front to bring the parts and draw conclusions.

Listen in or have your say there’s no pressure but be sure to sign up at no extra cost as spaces are limited.
