What makes Divya Nag a Global Shaker?

Divya dropped out of Stanford, founded Stem Cell Theranostics and built Stanford’s official medical innovation accelerator program.

Nag currently oversees Apple’s ambitious ResearchKit and CareKit programs, which encourage developers to build health-related apps. If Apple succeeds, it could transform clinical trials from isolated events at hospitals to ongoing studies that capture vital signs from omnipresent sensors.

Medical personnel use the technology in hospitals as a way to monitor and keep tabs on their patients. Plus, researchers can use the data to study diseases and health trends.
