New for Showcase 2016:
The Showcase logo features the words “Share, Learn, Improve.” Another word with a strong association to Showcase is “innovation.”


A Showcase innovation for 2016 will be Poster Flash Talks in the Marquee Theater at 9:15. Selected posters will be presented during short, 2-minute "flash talks" on selected posters. For those that pique your interest, there will still be an hour remaining to return to Varsity Hall and engage in conversations with those presenters.

Showcase 2016 Keynote Presentation: Kevin Conroy

In lieu of a lunch presentation, Kevin Conroy, our keynote speaker, will be introduced by Chancellor Becky Blank at 11:15, again in the Marquee Theater of Union South.

Kevin Conroy Photo Kevin Conroy has been President and CEO of Exact Sciences, Inc., since 2009 and Chairman of the Board since 2014. He moved Exact Sciences to Madison from Boston in 2009 with just a handful of employees and the company has since added more than 400 employees. Kevin has noted that he moved the company to Madison because of “the state’s strong, dedicated workers and the first-class universities to recruit talent.”

Exact Sciences Corp. (NASDAQ: EXAS) is a molecular diagnostics company focused on the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer. Its principal product, Cologuard, received a 2014 "Best of What's New" award from Popular Science.
