This year's keynote speaker will be MIT President L. Rafael Reif.  Dr. Reif has served as the 17th President of MIT since July 2012.  Previously, in his seven years as provost, he helped MIT weather the global financial crisis, drove the growth of MIT’s global strategy, promoted a major faculty-led effort to address challenges around race and diversity; fostered the emergence of the Kendall Square innovation cluster; helped launch the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science; and spearheaded the development of the Institute’s latest experiments in online learning, MITx and edX.  He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a fellow of the IEEE.  A MIT faculty member since 1980, he received his doctorate in electrical engineering from Stanford University.

Joining President Reif in the program will be Johannes Fruehauf, a serial life sciences entrepreneur and Founding Executive Director of LabCentral.  Dr. Fruehauf studied and practiced medicine in Germany and came to Boston for a research post-doc that resulted in the creation of Cequent Pharmaceuticals.  He also founded Cambridge Biolabs.  In 2012, Dr. Fruehauf founded LabCentral, a new non-profit shared laboratory project supported by a major grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and by Novartis Institute of Biomedical Research.  LabCentral is working with MIT as its real estate partner and is planning to locate its operations in 28,000 SF at 700 Main Street.  LabCentral’s mission is to help accelerate the formation of new innovative biotech companies in Massachusetts. 

Please join us along with your fellow colleagues, neighbors, and public officials to hear about the exciting work going on in Kendall Square.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, March 13, 2013!
