Speaker: Vivienne Ming, Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Socos LLC
When Vivienne Ming began her neuroscience PhD program in the early 2000s, she wanted to learn how to build cyborgs. Her classmates thought the idea was crazy. Fast forward fifteen years, and the idea doesn’t sound so crazy anymore. What was once purely theoretical is becoming possible. Neuroscience research is rapidly becoming applied neuroscience, and the Bay Area is leading the way, both in terms of conducting innovative research and translating this research into exciting new startups. At the September What’s Now: San Francisco, Ming discussed the cutting edge innovation currently underway at UC Berkeley, UCSF, and Stanford, as well as other institutions.
