Welcome to
                     WIRED Health
                     Last year, we were forced to postpone the 2020 edition of WIRED
                     Health a week before our event. The World Health Organisation had
                     just declared Covid-19 a global pandemic and the UK government had
                     imposed a lockdown that, sadly, made it impossible for us to proceed
                     with a live, in-person event.

                     Throughout 2020, Covid devastated families and shuttered entire
                     economies, with a death toll of nearly 3 million people worldwide.
                     Frontline health workers, nurses and doctors fought this invisible
                     enemy in hospitals, while, in an unprecedented and concerted
                     global effort, governments, pharmaceutical companies and biotech
                     companies worked together to invent and manufacture vaccines
                     against this new disease in a record time.

                     At this ninth edition of WIRED Health, I’ve invited some of the people
                     to whom we owe a great debt of gratitude for the important role
                     they’ve played in the fight against the virus: Ugur Sahin, CEO of
                     BioNTech, who developed the first approved vaccine against Covid;
                     infectious disease expert Céline Gounder, who advises President
                     Biden on Covid strategy; Rachel Clarke, a palliative care doctor who

spent a year on the Covid wards; Jemimah Kariuki, who, during
                                       the pandemic, launched Wheels for Life, a free ambulance service
                                       to help expecting mothers in Kenya.

                                       Of course, Covid is still with us, and we will continue to rely on the
                                       ingenuity of innovators and technologists to eradicate this disease.
                                       We will hear from TransferWise co-founder Taavet Hinrikus, on his new
                                       startup that aims to provide rapid Covid testing; while Joanna Shields,
                                       CEO of BenevolentAI, and Mei Mei Hu, CEO of COVAXX, will tell
                                       us how they are developing new vaccine technologies for the future.
                                       However, even in a year such as this, many of the breakthroughs in
                                       healthcare aren’t Covid-related at all.

                                       The geneticist George Church will give us an overview of new advances
                                       in genomics; Pixar co-founder Ed Catmull, along with neuroscientists
                                       Joel Pearson and Adam Zeman, will introduce us to the fascinating new
                                       science of visual imagery; and psychologist Adam Grant will explain the
                                       importance of our personal mindset and beliefs. Even in its new virtual
                                       format, this edition of WIRED Health will bring you its annual dose of
                                       bold new ideas and inspiration.

                                       We are delighted to welcome you to WIRED Health. Thank you
                                       to our wonderful speaker guests, event partners ISG and EY,
                                       and to you for joining.
