Dr Snehal Patel is one of the three judges who put together Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Asia 2017 Healthcare & Science list
For instance, Yuki Shimahara, an honoree from Japan, developed LPixel, a software and platform utilizing artificial intelligence to interpret and store medical imaging such as X-rays, CT scans and MRIs to help diagnose diseases. Another honoree, Liu Yuchen, this time from China, is a surgeon and researcher who developed DNA molecular robots that are programmable to detect and treat cancer cells.
Dr Snehal joins two other leading healthcare experts as judges for this esteemed category. They are Sonny Vu, founder and CEO of Misfit; and Steve Monaghan, an investor and chairman of Gen.Life Limited based in Hong Kong.
Dr Snehal’s participation fits well within the MyDoc journey as we aim to improve the quality and efficiency of the existing healthcare delivery system, providing a conducive digital ecosystem for patients and healthcare providers to interact.
