*Business as Usual or Brave New World?    *

 *The 6th Massachusetts Life Sciences Innovation (MALSI) Day  *is the
biggest day for life sciences startups and innovation in the Commonwealth
of Massachusetts. This is a high-energy, hands-on event which brings
together scientific leaders and business experts to mingle with scientists,
post-docs, professors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and venture capitalists.
Business as Usual or Brave New World?*  Can we learn valuable lessons from
life sciences start-up companies that have already been formed and funded?
Or are life sciences entrepreneurs entering a "Brave New World" where their
path to success is going to be completely different?  Our speakers and
panelists will consider the current status life sciences and what changes
we should expect in the future.  How will these changes impact basic
research, technology commercialization, investment in new companies, and
scientists' careers?

   - Getting to First Base - our panel of CEOs will talk about how they
   raised new funding in the last 12 months

   traits still be relevant in the future
   - What will the Academic-Industrial Complex look like in the next
