Event Details

Dr. Wilson To

 

Our keynote speaker will be Wilson To, PhD, Worldwide Head Healthcare BD with Amazon Web Services and a UC Davis alumni (MS, Comparative Pathology, 2011; PhD, Integrative Pathobiology, 2012). 

 

Dr. To has been heavily involved with the development of multiple award-winning products - some of which have led to several patent filings and an early healthcare startup venture. His innovative projects around point-of-care technologies and machine learning/artificial intelligence for early detection of diseases have touched the lives of hundreds of millions, and have been featured on a number of different major international media outlets around the world (including Bloomberg BusinessWeek, National Public Radio (NPR), Forbes, CNN, Reuters, etc.) and have been recognized by many global leaders.

 

His experience and familiarity with technology across both the healthcare and life sciences industries provide thought leadership for experimentation and innovation.  Previously he has worked as Senior Manager, Global Product Management with IQVIA, and was the co-founder of Lifelens, a company formed to develop scalable technologies for low-resource communities and edge devices. He led the foundational research, product development, and trial development for the point-of-care mobile technologies in global health issues, specifically malaria detection and vascular disease.   His work at Lifelens led to a $3 million Microsoft grant for its global impact potential, and he is the recipient of multiple innovation awards, including 3rd place in the international 2011 Imagine Cup Competition for Mobile Development and 2nd place in the US 2011 Imagine Cup Competition for Software Design in the US.
