In one of the biggest news stories of the year, Wall Street Journal reporter John Carreyrou exposed fraud by the founder of Theranos, a startup promising rapid blood testing and early disease detection. In a culmination of years of investigative work, Carreyrou published a bestselling book, Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup. We’ll walk through the reporting it took to bring a piece that spans science, health and big business to fruition, with expert advice on research and investigative techniques. We’ll be sure to leave plenty of time for Q&A.

This session is designed for:

  • Reporters interested in honing their techniques – long-term investigative and otherwise
  • Editors interested in learning how to make space for long-term projects
  • Anyone interested in going behind-the-scenes on how a major news story came together
