S2: #020: Dr Daniel Kraft on Exponential Medicine and The Singularity

41 minutes

My guest today is none other than Dr Daniel Kraft; a physician-scientist, inventor, entrepreneur, and innovator. He has over 25 years experience working across health care innovation, biomedical research, and clinical practice. He is the Chair for Medicine at Singularity University and the Founder and Chair of Exponential Medicine, and we dive into his work at these organizations in depth on this podcast.

He’s earned an undergraduate degree from Brown University, finished medical school at Stanford and was Board Certified in both Internal Medicine & Pediatrics after he completed a Harvard residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital & Boston Children’s Hospital. Oh, and he also completed fellowships in hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplantation at Stanford.

Now you might think that with all that, I’ve completed the introduction. But you’d be wrong.

Daniel is also an avid pilot and he served in the Massachusetts and California Air National Guard as an officer and flight surgeon with F-15 & F-16 fighter Squadrons. He has conducted research on aerospace medicine that was published with NASA, and he was a finalist at NASA for astronaut selection. Oh, yeah, and he has two young children under 3.

The man is on the move, and I hope you do get a chance to meet him in person. He brings an incredible energy when he gets on the stage and he must have a lot of energy to keep up his schedule.


Today’s Topics:

  • ‘The Singularity': What it is and what it means to medicine
  • Challenges and opportunities in medicine
  • The most exciting area in health technology today
  • Educating, Empowering and Enabling leaders
  • How to catalyze today's leaders to address the grand challenges
  • “Previvors” and Stage 0 patients
  • The XPRIZE and creating a new mindset to tackle audacious but achievable goals.
