Marty Tenenbaum presented the Keynote address at the Collaborative Cures Summit in the 4th Neurotech Industry Investing and Partnering Conference on May 11, 2009.

What are the bottlenecks to broad adoption of these collaborative technologies? How can semantic web technologies be used to radically improve data sharing and collaboration? How can these platforms be used to support breakthrough research across diseases?
