2013 Speaker 2013 Speaker Breakthrough Day

Stephen Friend is President and Co-Founder of Sage Bionetworks. He is widely known as an authority in oncology and was nominated a Champion of Change by the White House for his Sage Bionetworks. The Seattle-based non-profit develops collaborative platforms based on the concept of “precompetitive commons”, a space ruled neither by industry nor academia. In this online, open-access environment, biomedical researchers can convene, interact, exchange data sets and build upon on another’s work.

At Falling Walls, Steven Friend explains his strategy to inspire a cultural shift as wide as the gap between common good and the individual interests of academic researchers, biotech labs and pharmaceutical companies.
