Euma Ishii is an MD-PhD candidate at the Tokyo Medical and Dental University. He believes the marriage between health systems strengthening and data-backed technology is key for realizing a world without inequality or poverty. He has experience ranging from chemotherapeutic simulation modeling to drafting global health policy proposals, but has found his calling as a potential liaison between Japan and the world, specifically to improve healthcare systems. His goal in life is to realize a world where all have basic human rights and can make a living doing what they love. As an affiliate of MIT’s Laboratory for Computational Physiology, he performs retrospective cohort studies and applies predictive approaches for improving patient care. In his spare time, he works to facilitate international partnerships, and is currently setting up the Japan branch of Global Citizen, a movement of engaged citizens using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.
