Ryan found his startup cofounder at MIT’s “Nuts and Bolts” IAP class last year. Over the following spring and summer, Ryan worked with professors in CSAIL and the Media Lab to move their technology towards a business solution focus for securely analyzing personal or valuable information trapped in data silos. Named SAIL for Secure AI Labs, and an homage to MIT CSAIL, who patented the technology, SAIL is piloting with Pharmaceutical companies to access siloed data from clinical trials and chemical drug libraries, and collaborating with hospitals to build algorithms from private patient records. Ryan previously worked in Texas at a clean tech startup before relocating to Boston to study healthcare innovations and management at MIT Sloan. Ryan is originally from Arizona with a Master’s Degree in Bioengineering.
