It has been said of the world today that “the only constant is change.” Dr. Steven Hausman, with over thirty years experience as a researcher, administrator and senior executive at the world’s premier biomedical research organization, the National Institutes of Health, can provide an exciting glimpse of the future to your group. He is as comfortable presenting to scientific meetings in large auditoriums as he is talking to venture capitalists in small conference rooms. Dr. Hausman has a talent for describing innovations in science and technology in clear and understandable language. Drawing from a vast repertoire of movies, images, and news articles Dr. Hausman specializes in presentations on emerging technologies that highlight the most recent developments in:
- Aging Research
- Biomedical Advances
