Investing in innovation – new digital approaches for a new decade

  For the first time in history, we have the technologies that will allow us to develop new therapies and tools that can shift the paradigm from 'disease care' to true healthcare. As part of BIO-Europe Spring, Paul Tunnah sat down for a fireside chat with Johnson & Johnson Innovation's Dr William Hait to find out how his company is hoping to accelerate this shift through the convergence of digital and traditional R&D - including strategic approaches in data science and technology, and new collaborations in genomics medicine.
