There’s some amazing things coming down the healthcare pipeline and Daniel Kraft ( @daniel_kraft ) knows a “little” about all of them. We asked him to take us on a rollercoaster-journey through them.

Take for example regenerative medicine, which is starting to experience tremendous growth with the blossoming use of stem cells to help the body heal and replace damaged tissue.

Kraft teaches at Stanford University, is an expert on regenerative medicine, and a member of the faculty at Singularity University and is directing their upcoming FutureMed program.
