Meet Elazer Edelman

Key Intersections. Dr. Edelman believes that clinical work, scientific research, and engineering must all come together to keep the medical profession on track.

Explaining and Receiving Feedback. Physician-scientists have an obligation to explain their methods and then to listen carefully to feedback to ensure widespread understanding.

How to spur Innovation? Create communities where people feel safe and secure saying that they don’t know—and then let them investigate.
