What case or experience influenced you?

My most significant experience was the design of the world’s first application of relapse detection for patients with lung cancer. Thanks to 5 years of research, this application (Moovcare) reduced the mortality of patients by 3 times. For the first time the patient could participate in their follow-up and could communicate with their oncologist in online mode.

What is your vision of medicine?

Medicine should listen to patients and their symptoms. I have a vision of a modern medicine that takes into account the patient; medicine where technology serves the patient for him to have access to the best care in any country.

Your philosophy?

Do everything possible to treat the patient, accompany and support patients that suffer from cancer. Many of my loved ones have or have had cancer, so their fight is mine too.
