Join us at Mez on September 19th for dinner, networking and to learn about the strategic partnership between GlaxoSmithKline and Google parent Alaphabet's Life Sciences division, Verily, to form Galvani Bioelectronics.

Galvaniā€™s mission is to research and develop systems that use electrical signals in the human body to offset diseases. Formed in August 2016, the company will invest over $700M in the next seven years to create miniaturized, implantable devices that can modify irregular or altered electrical nerve signals that occur in many chronic illnesses including type 2 diabetes, arthritis and asthma.

How do two giants in their respective industries partner to successfully produce these life-enhancing devices? What are the challenges and how have the companies addressed them? Come learn from Adam Roth, founding member of the Galvani joint venture and leader of its Business Development activities, as he shares progress and insights.
