Science Shaping Our World-SHOW is an ongoing seminar and networking series that highlights cutting edge translational life science research and development. Our mission is to bring together a multidisciplinary audience spanning academia and industry providing exposure and insight into the life science advancements changing our world. March’s SHOW will focus on novel pathways within the life science space. Specifically, our panel speakers will highlight where and how they have applied their life science expertise and experience toward driving the life science innovation frontier.

Life Science Innovation Panelists:
Kevin Bitterman, Ph.D., Principal/Polaris Venture Partners
Dr. Bitterman joined Polaris Ventures in 2004 and focuses on investments in healthcare. Prior to joining Polaris Ventures, he completed his Ph.D. in genetics at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Bitterman is a cofounder of Genocea Biosciences and Sirtris Pharmaceuticals (GSK) and was the founding CEO at Visterra Inc. (formerly Parasol Therapeutics).

Gregory Fischer, Ph.D., Assistant professor, Director of Automation and Interventional Medicine Laboratory (AIM Lab) /Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Co-Founder, CTO/Surgisense Corporation

As the Director of the AIM lab Dr. Fischer is focused on medical robotics and using real time feedback to guide a surgical procedure. As co-founder of Surgisense he specializes in the design, development, testing, manufacturing, and marketing of next generation of “smart” sensing surgical instruments and medical devices to further enhance surgery, patient care, and patient safety.

Corrie Ann Painter, Ph.D., Postdocotral Research Fellow/ University of Massachusetts Medical School, CSO/Angiosarcoma Awareness Inc.

Dr. Painter is currently studying the role of the adaptive immune response to melanoma in a zebra fish model. In her final year of graduate school, Dr. Painter was diagnosed with angiosarcoma (a rare and aggressive cancer), soon after she co-founded Angiosarcoma Awareness Inc., to generate interest and awareness within the biomedical research community for this orphan disease. Dr. Painter serves as the chief scientific officer of Angiosarcoma Awareness Inc., where she distributes funds to multiple labs engaged in collaborative efforts aimed at understanding angiosarcoma.

Kathleen Seyb, Ph.D., Associate Director, Target Biology/Ra Pharmaceuticals
Dr. Seyb has carried out research at the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center, where she focused novel targets for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Currently, Dr. Seyb serves as the Associate Director of Target Biology at Ra Pharmaceuticals where the focus is the development of novel, peptide-like molecules as therapeutics for difficult to target protein-protein interactions.

Gordon Webster, Ph.D., Researcher in Synthetic Biology/Harvard Medical School
Dr. Webster has worked in life science R&D in both Europe and the U.S., and initiated and managed the first translational oncology clinical trial at a multinational pharmaceutical company and has coached and led research project teams in large matrix organizations, as well as large, distributed teams of scientists and technical specialists, working together across multiple time zones.

Please join us for an amazing evening of science, innovation, and networking. Event registration $10.00 with event sign-in beginning at 5:30 PM.
