World Economic ForumFoundation Chairman Neal F. Kassell, MD has been invited to join the Future of Neurotechnologies and Brain Science council, one of the networks in the Global Future Councils, a community of world-leading experts and innovators to provide bold visions for solving critical global, regional, and industry challenges. The Councils’ first meeting took place in Dubai November 13-14, 2016.

“Exposing this group to the work being done in focused ultrasound is critical to our mission and theirs,” says Kassell. “The future of medicine is a part of world economic growth, and our participation on a global scale matches the growth of focused ultrasound worldwide.”

The World Economic Forum is an international organization for public-private cooperation that engages leaders to shape global, regional, and industry agendas. More than 800 innovators from academia, government, business, civil society, the arts, and the media will support the Forum’s work across 14 global systems to generate ideas for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is building on the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.
