This week, we’ll talk with Abbott’s medical devices EVP Lisa Earnhardt about how the life sciences giant pivoted during the pandemic.
Earnhardt shares what programs were given greater priority when the lockdown’s impact became clear and why the company performed so well in one of its key businesses.
We also explore this week’s news that the FTC will oppose Illumina’s acquisition of Grail.
First, we talk with Dr. Christopher Keir, vice president of medical affairs at Grail, about the great potential of the company’s diagnostic technologies. We recorded the interview last month — before the FTC’s decision.
Then we talk to Vijay Kumar, senior managing director at Evercore ISI, about why the FTC is making a strong case to block the deal.
Finally, don’t forget to join us on Clubhouse for DeviceTalks Weekly Live at 1 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday.
