Infectious disease physician, entrepreneur, and life-long innovator, Diego Miralles has pursued the frontiers of medicine on three continents, and in at least three distinct settings – academia, biotech startups, and the largest pharma company on earth, J&J. There, he founded both the J-Labs incubator and the J&J Innovation Network, which has offices around the world, including the Bay Area, Boston, London, and Shanghai. Diego recently rejoined the startup world, taking a leadership role at Adaptive Biotechnologies, where he is President and will be leading their therapeutic initiatives.
While some people are changed by their work environment (not always for the better…), Diego has instead managed to bring his deeply-felt compassion and restless creativity to each organization he’s been part of, making each of these companies more empathetic and inquisitive in the process. His sense of humor and the joy he spreads to colleagues are infectious in the best sense of the word.
We are thrilled to welcome this physician, scientist, drug developer, and humanist to our program today. You can listen to his interview below, or find it on iTunes by clicking HERE or on the Connected Social Media website HERE.
