Just sharing some photos and audio from this month's Convergence Forum in Chatham, Mass. It's a conference that brings together executives, entrepreneurs and investors from the New England life sciences business. (I'm on the advisory board.) Some of the big speakers this year included Genzyme CEO David Meeker, Third Rock Ventures founder Mark Levin, OvaScience CEO Michelle Dipp, and Jose-Carlos Gutierrez-Ramos of Pfizer. You can see the Twitter traffic for the event here.
