Richard Barker will explore the mystery of our persistent failure in turning great advances in bioscience into lasting and affordable patient benefit. He will lay out five 'gaps in translation' and a strategy to overcome each—with precision medicine the golden thread that runs through his solutions. He believes we can improve the productivity of the medical innovation process by at least an order of magnitude, if we are prepared to challenge and change our innovation ecosystem.
