New York: The Business Potential of Engineering Biology
Presented by the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York 
January 18, 2017 from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Medidata Solutions, 350 Hudson Street, New York, NY

Cost: $30 CBSACNY members, $15 students, $40 Non-members; $45 walk-ins

We’ve all heard about the power of synthetic biology to create and modify living cells on increasingly large scales. Better known as engineering biology, the field is a hot and controversial area of science, which is impacting business profoundly. 

Not since the completion of the Human Genome Project nearly 20 years ago, has a new scientific discipline energized the public and private sectors with far-reaching potential to change medicine and healthcare as well as solve important global problems in energy, agriculture and materials. CB Insights currently cites synthetic biology as one of the top 8 game-changing opportunities for investors. 

CBSACNY has organized a dynamic panel of pioneering scientists, investors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders, who will discuss the financing environment for emerging companies in this space, market opportunities, and what kind of business leadership can facilitate its growth. Panelists include:


	
Nancy J Kelley, moderator and speaker: President & CEO, Nancy J Kelley & Associates
	
Virginia Cornish, PhD, Helena Rubinstein Professor, Department of Chemistry, Columbia University
	
Jef Boeke, PhD, founder of the Institute for Systems Genetics and professor of biochemistry at NYU School of Medicine
	
Andras Forgacs, co-founder and CEO of Modern Meadow

Tennis Australia has kindly donated the tour to our group (normally valued at $75pp).

After working up an appetite on tour, we will be rewarded by one of the favorite dining experiences on site at Grass & Grain, a bustling New York-style steakhouse. Located on the city side of Margaret Court Arena, Grass & Grain offers casual dining with river views where we will enjoy some of the finest local produce from the three-course set menu.

Following our meal, we will take a short stroll to experience some of the best tennis on offer at the Australian Open from our hand-selected, category 1 seats at Margaret Court Arena. It will be Day 4 of the first Grand Slam of the 2017 tennis season, where will see first-hand the form and fitness of the present and future stars of world tennis as they battle to reign supreme.

Some enlightened executives have found ways to outsmart their rivals and compete on their own terms, however. Come hear Leonard Sherman’s practical advice on two of the most vexing issues facing businesses today: How can we achieve long-term profitable growth, and what can we do to break away from the pack?
