12:30 - 18:15
Biologics Alliance Think Tank (upon invitation only)
The Think Tank format will be similar to the television show: “Shark Tank". Presenters (“contestants”) will be industry or academic researchers with new orthobiologic ideas, products, applications, etc. They will appear before a panel of judges similar to those on Shark Tank, only these judges have special expertise in orthopedics/OrthoBiologics. After the judging panel has completed their questions and suggestions, the presenters will take question from a panel of industry reporters/analysts and then from the floor. The session will end with recommendations from the Judges who will also score the presenters to allow for a “winner” at the conclusion of the day.
Judges/Sharks: Scott Bruder, Laurence Higgins, Nicholas Pachuda, Christopher Shen
Reporters/Analysts: Kim French, Sharon O'Reilly, Robin Young, Patrick Duffey
