Healthcare entrepreneurs start companies to create solutions that ultimately benefit patients; but this is a long journey, with few road signs along the way. Join JLABS (part of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, LLC) on February 2 to hear insights and lessons learned from successful Assembly Biosciences Founder and CMO Uri Lopatin, who will be interviewed by Jeff Calcagno of Johnson & Johnson Innovation. The conversation will focus on the making of a healthcare entrepreneur, how he navigated his way from academia to big biotech to startup, and how he and his teammates—with help from Johnson & Johnson Innovation—led Assembly Biosciences from seed stage to public company in less than two years. The pair will be look at the highlights of Uri's journey, including early mistakes and successes, surprises, lessons learned from working with investors and with Johnson & Johnson Innovation, and more.
