Please join us for a conversation with John Carreyrou, Investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal and author of the New York Times bestseller “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup.”
Carreyrou will discuss his book about the rise and fall of Silicon Valley darling, the blood testing company Theranos, and its charismatic, Stanford drop-out CEO, Elizabeth Holmes.
In recent weeks, news has emerged that the company will in fact cease operations, despite a short-lived attempt to survive after removing Holmes.
Carreyrou reported in the Wall Street Journal, “The move comes after federal prosecutors filed criminal charges against Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes and the blood-testing company’s former No. 2 executive, alleging that they defrauded investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars and defrauded doctors and patients. The executives have denied the charges and face a coming criminal trial.”
Complimentary copies of Bad Blood will be available for the first 350 audience members to arrive.
Please help us plan – RSVP here!
This event is hosted by Cambridge Science, Harvard College Cabot House, and the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School.
