These facilities will collectively support dozens of new healthcare inventions, fostering a diverse ecosystem of early stage life science companies in Houston. This RESI panel, The Future Is Now, will cover these new developments and explain why Houston’s moment for has come.
Moderated by Nicole Fisher, Founder & CEO, HHR Strategies, the panel will feature:
- Judi Manis, RVP – Business Development and Strategic Relations, Internet of Things – Healthcare, AT&T Foundry
- Erik Halvorsen, Director, TMC Innovation Institute
