CAMBRIDGE, Mass., January 11, 2020 -- Flagship Pioneering, a life science platforms company, today announced its participation in the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference 2021. A number of Flagship companies will present or announce new scientific advancements, research programs, partnerships and fundraising rounds throughout the week.

Flagship Pioneering will also host a conversation between Founder and CEO Noubar Afeyan and CNBC’s Senior Health and Science Reporter Meg Tirrell on Tuesday, January 12th at 3pm ET. The conversation will cover the latest news about Moderna’s mRNA-1273 vaccine and its deployment, Flagship’s increasing focus on Health Security and pre-emptive therapeutics, and why and how this is “biotech’s moment.” They will also take audience questions.
