“Today’s leaders are working at the most robust intersection between science and technology in the world,” said Rick Berke, Co-Founder & Executive Editor of STAT. “STAT is honored to provide a forum where attendees can gain critical insights from top leaders in health tech on  future technologies that will impact every aspect of life.”

“Technology has allowed us to continue to be productive throughout the pandemic—and it has long promised to do the same for health care,” said Matthew Herper, Editorial Director of Events at STAT. “But it is hard to make progress in medicine without real, in-person conversations. And that is what we’ll be aiming for at this event.”

The Summit is being presented by Syntropy, a technology company specializing in healthcare data governance, harmonization, and collaboration solutions aimed at unlocking the value of real-world data. “Collaboration is at the very heart of scientific progress,” said James Kugler, Chief Digital Officer, Merck KGaA Darmstadt, Germany and Director of Syntropy. “Recognizing scientists as our heroes and enabling them to succeed will prompt a wave of new discoveries. This year’s hybrid event is a great example of how we can overcome boundaries and bring more voices to the table to accelerate our continuous journey towards improving patients’ lives.”
