Dr. Daniel Kraft is a Stanford and Harvard trained physician-scientist, inventor and innovator. With over 25 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research and healthcare innovation, Daniel has served as Faculty Chair for Medicine & Neuroscience at Singularity University since SU’s inception, and founded and is chair of Exponential Medicine, a program that explores convergent, rapidly developing technologies and their potential in biomedicine and healthcare.
Following undergraduate degrees from Brown University and medical school at Stanford, Daniel was Board Certified in both Internal Medicine & Pediatrics after completing a Harvard residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital & Boston Children’s Hospital, and fellowships in hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplantation at Stanford.Read More
He has multiple patents on medical devices, digital health, immunology and stem cell-related patents through faculty positions with Stanford University School of Medicine and as clinical faculty for University of California, San Francisco.
Daniel was selected as a fellow of the inaugural 2016 class of the Aspen Institute Health Innovators Fellowship and is a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
Daniel’s academic research has focused on: stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, stem cell-derived immunotherapies for cancer, bioengineering human T-cell differentiation, and humanized animal models. His clinical work has focused on: bone marrow / hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for malignant and non-malignant diseases in adults and children, medical devices to enable stem cell-based regenerative medicine, including marrow-derived stem cell harvesting, processing and delivery. He also implemented the first text-paging system at Stanford Hospital.
Daneil recently founded IntelliMedicine, focused on enabling connected, data-driven, and integrated personalized medicine. He is also the inventor of the MarrowMiner, an FDA approved device for the minimally invasive harvest of bone marrow and founded RegenMed Systems, a company developing technologies to enable adult stem cell-based regenerative therapies.
Daniel is an avid pilot and has served in the Massachusetts and California Air National Guard as an officer and flight surgeon with F-15 & F-16 fighter Squadrons. He has conducted research on aerospace medicine that was published with NASA, with whom he was a finalist for astronaut selection. He’s an adviser to the X-PRIZE Foundation (where he conceived of the Tricorder XPrize and is bold innovator for the Cancer XPRIZE), Advisor to Qualcomm Life, Rock Health, and several life sciences, biopharma and digital health companies, TED Speaker.Read Less
Future of Medicine
