    Dr. Poorya Hosseini (President of Iranian Studies Group at MIT).

    Scientist, Entrepreneur and Originator. I am extremely passionate about entrepreneurship and solving complex problems. Speaking of complexity, I am currently fascinated by the space lying at the interface of medical sciences (e.g. biology) and engineering (e.g. artificial intelligence) that aims at development of novel therapeutics. In addition to my day-to-day entrepreneurial activities, I am greatly interested in understanding the broader factors that turn breakthrough “discoveries” to innovative “products” that generates both monetary as well as societal values, requiring effective use of private equity, strategic partnerships, and leadership and management practices that drives development of disruptive ventures at various levels.
