Featured Speaker: Anne Wojcicki

Date TBA

Anne co-founded 23andMe in 2006 after a decade spent in healthcare investing, with an audacious goal: to help people access, understand, and benefit from the human genome and fundamentally change healthcare in the process. A pioneer in the direct-to-consumer DNA testing space, Anne’s vision and persistence have not only allowed 23andMe to provide millions with access to genetic information, but have powered an industry-first crowdsourcing approach to genetic research and drug development – yielding more than 200 scientific publications and two therapeutic programs in phase 1 clinical trials.

Anne graduated from Yale University with a BS in Biology.
