Blockchain and Drug Supply Assurance in the Coronavirus Era - While the US pharmaceutical supply chain is showing resilience in the face of global uncertainty, the need for real-time assurance has never been more pressing. In this talk, LedgerDomain CEO Ben Taylor will share results from his team’s work with UCLA on a recent pilot commissioned by the FDA. The study featured a blockchain-backed solution that enables caregivers to make sure that medicines are unexpired and genuine, all in real time on their iPhone.
Ben Taylor is the CEO of LedgerDomain, founded in 2016 to bring blockchain solutions to enterprise ecosystems, unlocking a world of communal computing and real-time performance. After doing undergraduate and graduate work at MIT, Ben spent a quarter of a century incubating and investing in early-stage technology companies.

Pandemic Tech: How emerging technologies can mitigate the impact of Covid19 and future pandemics -We are facing a once in a century pandemic with health, social and economic impacts we are only beginning to fully grasp. How can blockchain and other emerging technologies mitigate these impacts? We'll look at some of the early attempts to use these new tools to help across the many aspects of the challenges we are facing. We'll also look ahead to see how these technologies, which only months ago seemed many years away from widespread use, may begin to transform our lives in the near future and prepare us for threats known and unknown.
