Event description

Description

Our 2017 two-part Symposium’s theme is “Made in Cambridge: What’s Happening in Kendall Square?”

Join us for the second part, “What’s Next?”

We'll explore what Kendall Square means to us now- what we're proud of and what we fear, what we see and what remains invisible.

We'll hear from speakers and event attendees alike, about how we think Science Cambridge and Resident Cambridge connect now in Kendall Square, what we think we'll see and what we want to see in Kendall Square's and Cambridge's biotech industry's future.

Our Moderator is Mimi Graney. Our speakers are David Sun Kong, Community Biotechnology Initiative at the MIT Media Lab; Abbie Celniker, a Partner at Third Rock Ventures; and Debra Morris, President of the Newtowne Court-Washington Elms Tenant Council.
