As a child, I developed hundreds of moles over my body that put me at increased risk of melanoma. Having annual dermatology check-ups to screen for abnormal moles has always been part of my life. Then, in 2015, a friend introduced me to Hospices of Hope, a non-profit in Romania that builds and operates hospices for terminally ill cancer patients. Speaking to patients and their doctors helped me learn that one of the biggest problems in cancer is the lack of a fast, accurate, affordable way to screen for cancer everywhere in the body.

So I started Ezra, a technology company focused on detecting cancer early using MRI and Artificial Intelligence. You can read more about Ezra here.
