“Data is here so search for its insights. Don’t focus on the problem, look for the solution. To do this we need to have a Hackers' Spirit and the pride to overcome challenges.”

“Don't forget your personal life, because although ambition is important there is always a personal life behind. What I know from my own past is that if you get more and more rigid because people don’t accept what you are doing, you may be too hard. Therefore you need to also culture your soft skills, to be human when you are also a pioneer. As a manager, you need to keep an eye on your PhD students. They can have difficult times when things don’t work like they want so you have to keep an open eye otherwise people will disappear and become frustrated.”

Angela Maas

Professor of Women’s Cardiac Health Department of Cardiology - Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen, the Netherlands


“Focus on execution. It is all that stands between you and success”

Helmut Schuehsler

Chairman & CEO - TVM Capital Healthcare Partners Ltd.


“Treat people with respect, build trust, demonstrate caring, exude integrity, display dependability and character.”

Thanh Tran

“Lead through example and follow up”

Abelardo Vidaurreta
