NextTech Speaker Series – Accelerating Science: New Technology and New Markets



6:0pm - 9:0pm

NextTech speaker Serge Saxonov, a serial entrepreneur who co-founded 10x Genomics, was VP of Applications at QuantaLife, and Founding Architect and Director of R&D at 23andMe, will deliver the key to building a big company in the life science tool space.

Serge's endeavors are based on a common goal: to accelerate science. While many believe 23andMe has recently pivoted to pharma and research, the original goal was always to connect customers to their genetics in order to accelerate research. 10x Genomics was founded on the premise that the world of healthcare and life sciences needs new tools to address the most fundamental questions in biology. 10x Genomics has assembled a great hyper-multidisciplinary team to build products with that purpose in mind.

Using an informal interview format, Tri-Valley entrepreneur, Don Arnold, will engage the audience in revealing how Serge's technical leadership has built new biotech tools and companies that truly accelerate science. RSVP via Meetup and reserve your place (at no charge) via Eventbrite.
