Ann Romney is the former First Lady of Massachusetts, a New York Times best-selling author, and global ambassador of the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, a project she founded in 2014. The wife of a politician and businessman Mitt Romney, Mrs. Romney served as a powerful voice in her husband's bids for the White House. With remarkable stories and insights that will touch all audiences, her valued perspective on her life in and out of the political spotlight is engaging and informative. Mrs. Romney is the mother of five sons and daughters-in-law, and grandmother of 23; she has been a tireless advocate of families throughout her career.

“Ann Romney embodies the ‘Breakthrough’ theme of this year’s BIO International Convention through her persistence in the face of adversity and her determination to reclaim her health. Mrs. Romney’s compelling personal story and her vision as a global ambassador for brain health research reflect the cornerstone of our Convention programming designed to inspire and educate biotechnology leaders.”

Interview with James C. Greenwood, BIO President & CEO

David Cameron Keynote

Sponsored by:


David Cameron was Prime Minister of the UK from May 2010 until July 2016. He led a Conservative and Liberal Democrat Coalition Government from 2010 until 2015 and continued as Prime Minister after winning an outright majority at the 2015 General Election leading a Conservative Government. He stepped down as Prime Minister shortly after the UK voted in a June 2016 referendum to leave the European Union (EU). Cameron campaigned for Britain to remain in the EU, a partnership of 28 European countries which began right after World War II.

Jim-Greenwood-headshot-small“Mr. Cameron will use his vast experience as a global leader to reflect on the rapidly changing global landscape both here and abroad. Our audience will enjoy these helpful and timely insights as we navigate a potentially new and challenging transformational political environment.”
