The State of Possible Conference, MassBio's Annual Meeting, will now be hosted virtually on August 26-27, 2020. Featuring interactive networking and a groundbreaking viewer experience, this event will not be your average webinar.  

We will celebrate what’s possible in our industry and for patients today that wasn’t five or 10 years ago. The two-day event will draw over 600 industry leaders from Massachusetts and beyond to debate the most pressing challenges facing the life sciences to ensure we can continue this incredible success. 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.

"It's the Woodstock of Life Sciences, with all-star performers playing their greatest hits all on one stage.” – 2019 State of Possible Conference attendee
If you haven’t attended our State of Possible Conference before, it is the premier east coast life sciences conference. We have some of the brightest names in biotech talking about the issues impacting our industry, covering topics from the realities of precision medicine to advancing new drug targets faster.

PhD, VP, QuartzBio, Precision for Medicine
Renee Deehan-Kenney, PhD, is a molecular biologist by training and has spent the last decade guiding drug discovery and biomarker development by designing and building high-resolution molecular models of disease, and creating systems that find meaning in large-scale biological data. Prior to QuartzBio, Dr Deehan-Kenney was VP, Biology & Bioinformatics at PatientsLikeMe where she scaled the computational biology team from inception to 30 members, focused on development of an integrated research platform, and the generation and analysis of multi-omic and patient-generated health data. In addition, she implemented machine-learning, statistical and systems biology-based modeling approaches, collaborating globally with teams based in China and Israel. Dr Deehan-Kenney was also the PI for the DigitalMe Ignite program, a nation-wide registry where blood and survey data was collected for multi-omic measurement and analysis to yield insights about personalized health. Dr Deehan-Kenney was previously Senior Vice President of Research and Chief Scientific Officer at Selventa. In that role, she set the scientific direction for the company’s personalized medicine strategy and built a multidisciplinary team of biologists and computational biologists to characterize disease biology and identify target pathways. Dr Deehan-Kenney holds a doctoral degree in molecular and cell biology from the University of California, Berkeley and a bachelor of science degree in bioengineering with a minor in mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania.
