Healthtech and Hype: Lessons from Theranos

The rise and fall of Theranos has seen the unravelling of this US based health-technology start-up, with the once heralded company now under criminal investigation and facing a class action. Join our panel of experts for a discussion on the lessons from Theranos and the future implications for IVDs, personalised medicine and “disruptive” healthcare technology. Beyond the hype, what will the legacy of Theranos be on the regulatory, governance and investor landscape for healthcare start-ups and the broader industry?
