The Burrill Report
A 20/20 Vision to 2020 (.MP3,20.13 Mb)
On this special edition of The Journal of Life Sciences Podcast, we travel to Half Moon Bay, California for the annual limited partners meeting of the San Francisco-based life sciences merchant bank Burrill & Company. TJOLS was permitted to record portions of this closed-door conference held this year at the end of April. Steve Burrill, CEO of Burrill & Company and co-publisher of TJOLS, spoke about his vision for the changing world of healthcare in the year 2020. It is the focus of Burrill & Company's annual report on the biotech industry Biotech 2008-Life Sciences: A 20/20 Vision to 2020. Steve discusses how we are moving from a world of treatment to one of prediction and prevention, how technology will be harnessed to invisibly monitor patients as they go about their everyday activities, and how 12 years from now when people need medical treatment, they will go to Wal-Mart.
