Boulder, CO, April 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The fifth annual GoldLab Symposium will take place on the University of Colorado Boulder campus on Friday and Saturday, May 16 - 17, 2014. This year’s Symposium, entitled “Embracing the Reptile Within: Head, Heart and Healthcare,” brings together 18 renowned scientists and healthcare experts to discuss progress and issues in personalized medicine. The announcement is made by Colorado Bioscience Association President & CEO April Giles, who says, “Registration can be accomplished online at the Colorado Bioscience Association website: http://www.cobioscience.com/events-calendar/goldlab-symposium-2014.”
“This year our Symposium will have several talks on how the brain works and about the limitations of some of our brain capacity. Indeed, we are less rational than perhaps we might hope,” said Larry Gold, the Symposium’s founder. “The limitations of our neural capacities stand in the way of healthcare improvement,” he added. “The number of great things done in the world is smaller than it ought to be. I blame our ‘reptilian brains’ and this year we will confront our deficiencies without fear,” Gold concluded.
Once again, the Symposium will focus on emerging knowledge in science and medicine, endeavoring as always to make the hard science completely understandable to the audience. Discussions of the intellectual, scientific, economic, and social aspects of healthcare will be stimulated by agent provocateurs who will challenge and upset participants with interludes of deep thought about how we learn and act. As well, the Symposium will feature philosophy and humor.
The Gold Lab Symposia were initiated in 2010 to bring together a community of world-class scientists, policy experts, and thinkers to foster deep discussions about biological innovations and the improvement of health care, with a goal of reaching actionable conclusions. Each year, this community identifies the biological technologies that are being integrated into the mainstream to transform key aspects of healthcare.
Speakers scheduled for the 2014 event include: Alan Attie (University of Wisconsin), Tom Cathcart (Freelance Writer), Scott Danielson (SweetViva, Inc.), Bob Duke (University of Texas), Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. (Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute), Peter Ganz (UCSF School of Medicine), Joy Hirsch (Yale University), Ted Kaptchuk (Harvard Medical School), David Krakauer (University of Wisconsin), Richard Levin (Yale University), Charles Middleton (Roosevelt University), James Rothman (Yale University), Lucy Shapiro (Stanford University), Ken Sharpe (Swarthmore College), Neil Siegel (Northrop Grumman), Ajit Singh (Artiman), Lisa Stubbs (University of Illinois) and Steve Williams (SomaLogic).
The Symposium will be held in the Muenzinger Auditorium on the University of Colorado Boulder campus from 8:30 AM - 6 PM on Friday, May 16th, and 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM on Saturday, May 17th. Admission is free but seating is limited. Registration can be accomplished online at the Colorado Biosciences Association website: http://www.cobioscience.com/events-calendar/goldlab-symposium-2014.
