Daniel Kraft is a Stanford and Harvard trained physician-scientist, inventor, entrepreneur, and innovator. With over 25 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research and healthcare innovation, Kraft has chaired the Medicine for Singularity University since its inception in 2008, and is the Founder and 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.
He has multiple scientific publications and medical device, immunology and stem cell related patents through faculty positions with Stanford University School of Medicine and as clinical faculty for the pediatric bone marrow transplantation service at University of California San Francisco.
Daniel is a member of the Kaufman Fellows Society (Class 13) and member of the Inaugural (2015) class of the Aspen Institute Health Innovators Fellowship.
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. Clinical work focuses 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.
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.
From the perspective of a leading physician-scientist, inventor and innovator, Dr. Daniel Kraft will examine rapidly emerging, game-changing and convergent technology trends, and how they are and will be leveraged to change the face of healthcare and the practice of medicine in the next decade, crossing the healthcare continuum from health and prevention to diagnostics and therapy. A dive into where emergent fields such as low cost personal genomics, digital health, crowdsourced data, molecular imaging, wearable devices & mobile health, synthetic biology, robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing to gene therapy and regenerative medicine are transforming healthcare, and have the potential to enable clinicians, empower patients and payers and deliver better, more proactive care while improving outcomes at lower cost.
“Wow! Thank you so much for being the feature presentation at the inaugural Digital Health Conference.
This was a first-of-its-kind conference for pharmacy. The participants were in awe of the world you exposed them to in your brilliant “Daniel Kraft” signature style!
We have been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the participants. It seems this was more than a conference, instead it may be the beginning of a movement to catalyze the future of pharmacy.
Thank you so much!”
“Just wanted to drop you a quick note and offer a sincere thank you for your participation in our Elite Client Conference!
We’ve had numerous positive comments about your exceptional content and your unique delivery. Several commented on the potential size of your pockets…wondering how many more gadgets you had stored in your suit….
