Shot of #DigitalHealth Therapy – Jacob LaPorte
In this birthday 🎂 edition of “Shot of #DigitalHealth Therapy”, Jim Joyce and I had the pleasure of having Jacob LaPorte, Ph.D., Co-Founder of Novartis Biome, who turned 25 today 😂and still decided to join us on his birthday! (also happy birthday Glen Tullman!!!) We talked about:
✅ Jacob’s path from molecular biologist -> organic chemist -> consultant -> CRO -> Pharma
✅ How Novartis Biome is building an “onramp” for #digitalhealth startups just not a New Jersey kind 😄
✅ EROOM law and pharma R&D productivity
✅ Novartis digital brain
✅ And two degrees of separation with Shwen Gwee
Finally we thought that Vas Narasimhan and his popularity will definitely push our show to 200 subscribers in one shot!
