Science & Medicine


Divya Nag is a futurist.
A dreamer, do-er, darer.
An avid supporter of women in science and technology.
A world traveler with an Achilles heel for historic architecture and paperback books.

Nag co-authored two dozen publications on stem cell technologies at the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and dropped out of Stanford at the age of 20 to found Stem Cell Theranostics, a biotechnology company committed to revolutionizing the drug discovery process by performing the first “clinical trial in a dish” through the use of patient-specific beating heart cells derived from skin.

She also founded StartX Med, Stanford University and Stanford Hospital’s non-profit medical innovation accelerator program that has helped more than 100 health technology companies launch and raise over $400M. Divya joined Apple’s Special Projects group in 2014.

Divya has been named the 2nd Most Creative Person in Business by Fast Company, included on the Silicon Valley Top 100 Innovators and Disruptors list, selected as Forbes 30 under 30 standout in Science & Healthcare, and highlighted by Business Insider as one of the Most Powerful Millennials under 35.
