  • 1. Registration Now Open At CBSA Website: GoldLab 5th Annual Symposium 2014, “Embracing the Reptile Within: Head, Heart and Healthcare” Registration is now open at the CBSA website for the fifth annual GoldLab Symposium, taking place on the  University of Colorado Boulder campus, Friday and Saturday, May 16 ‐ 17, 2014. This year’s Symposium,  entitled “Embracing the Reptile Within: Head, Heart and Healthcare” brings together 18 renowned scientists  and healthcare experts to discuss progress and issues in personalized medicine. Boulder, CO, April 9, 2014 – The fifth annual GoldLab Symposium will take place on the University of Colorado  Boulder campus on Friday and Saturday, May 16 ‐ 17, 2014. This year’s Symposium, entitled “Embracing the  Reptile Within: Head, Heart and Healthcare,” brings together 18 renowned scientists and healthcare experts  to discuss progress and issues in personalized medicine. The announcement is made by Colorado Bioscience  Association President & CEO April Giles, who says, “Registration can be accomplished online at the Colorado  Bioscience Association website: http://www.cobioscience.com/events‐calendar/goldlab‐symposium‐2014.”      “This year our Symposium will have several talks on how the brain works and about the limitations of some of  our brain capacity.  Indeed, we are less rational than perhaps we might hope,” said Larry Gold, the  Symposium’s founder. “The limitations of our neural capacities stand in the way of healthcare improvement,”  he added.  “The number of great things done in the world is smaller than it ought to be. I blame our ‘reptilian  brains’ and this year we will confront our deficiencies without fear,” Gold concluded.   Once again, the Symposium will focus on emerging knowledge in science and medicine, endeavoring as always  to make the hard science completely understandable to the audience. Discussions of the intellectual,  scientific, economic, and social aspects of healthcare will be stimulated by agent provocateurs who will  challenge and upset participants with interludes of deep thought about how we learn and act.  As well, the  Symposium will feature philosophy and humor.       The Gold Lab Symposia were initiated in 2010 to bring together a community of world‐class scientists, policy  experts, and thinkers to foster deep discussions about biological innovations and the improvement of health  care, with a goal of reaching actionable conclusions. Each year, this community identifies the biological  technologies that are being integrated into the mainstream to transform key aspects of healthcare.     Speakers scheduled for the 2014 event include:  Alan Attie (University of Wisconsin), Tom Cathcart (Freelance  Writer), Scott Danielson (SweetViva, Inc.), Bob Duke (University of Texas), Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. (Cleveland  Clinic Wellness Institute), Peter Ganz (UCSF School of Medicine), Joy Hirsch (Yale University), Ted Kaptchuk  (Harvard Medical School), David Krakauer (University of Wisconsin), Richard Levin (Yale University), Charles  Middleton (Roosevelt University), James Rothman (Yale University), Lucy Shapiro (Stanford University), Ken Sharpe (Swarthmore College), Neil Siegel (Northrop Grumman), Ajit Singh (Artiman), Lisa Stubbs (University of  Illinois) and Steve Williams (SomaLogic).   ‐More‐
