“Biotech, Med Tech, Health Tech: Austin Can Become A Leader” says
The Austin Forum presents a panel moderated by Scott Collins, BioAustin, and sponsored by BioAustin and St. David's Healthcare.


Austin is one the leading technology cities in the world–but not in biotech (yet). Austin’s strengths in other areas of technology, its talented workforce, a world-class research university, two great hospital systems, an attractive climate for business, and even some notable biotech company success stories have not yet resulted in the creation of large, vibrant biotech sector. However, Austin can become a great biotech city, producing products, services, and knowledge that increase the quality and duration of lives. The creation of the Dell Medical School may be the spark that was needed to ignite the growth of the Austin biotech community, but it will also require vision and effort from industry and government to create a world-class biotech sector. The panelists will discuss how Austin’s many strengths–companies, institutions, technologies, and even culture–can be leveraged and its creative talents harnessed to develop innovative, disruptive technologies and systems that change lives and society. The speakers will also address how this will benefit Austin–jobs, economy, quality of healthcare, and more–and how Austinites can contribute to building our biotech sector.
