Attendees will hear from the brightest minds through keynotes, panel discussions and 15-minute Possible Talks®, inspiring and engaging content in the style of a TED Talk.

She has a unique interdisciplinary background in Mathematics, Bioinformatics and Molecular Biology. Nora was the first scientist to show gene transfer between multi-cellular species. This ground-breaking find put into question many of the phylogenetic methods currently in use today. Some of Nora’s publications have been placed in a library of the top 2% of published articles in the fields of biology and medicine.
Starting from an idea at her kitchen table and initially funded by personal savings, Dr Khaldi has grown Nuritas rapidly surrounding herself with a team of experts and raising funding from numerous sources in excess of $65m. She also spearheaded the expansion of Nuritas to the USA with the opening of a Boston office.
