Can you explain your job to a five-year-old?

What excites you most about your job?
My business is to think the unthinkable and take responsibility for moonshots.
Which trend will change the future of medicine?
Healthcare in the metaverse is the most powerful trend. It is why we are developing the first drugs to be approved for the metaverse.
Looking back, which trends have you missed or underestimated?
The only thing I underestimated was the inertia of doctors in using digital innovations for good.
Which MedTech initiative or startup deserves more attention?
Non-invasive brain stimulation and smart drug-device combinations.
Where would you put a million dollars?
Into buying food for starving children in Africa (or elsewhere).
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Be respectless to the system and respectful to the people.
