Shaping the future of health

Shaping the future of health

An “ask me anything” conversation with Senior Director Ben Alsdurf.

Luminary Labs has deep roots in the future of health — from discovery and translation to digital point of care. Over the past 15 years, we’ve been helping government agencies, nonprofit foundations, and corporate clients navigate new technologies, new partnerships, and new ways of working to launch groundbreaking programs. In this live virtual AMA, Founding Partner and CEO Sara Holoubek speaks with Ben Alsdurf, Senior Director, Future of Health, about the current health innovation environment, Luminary Labs’ client engagements, and how our teams and work are structured.

Here are some of the questions Sara and Ben discussed in their live discussion on June 7, 2024:

  • How do you define the future of health?
  • What’s distinctive about Luminary Labs’ approach?
  • How do you think about the connections between tech innovation and the future of health?
  • What are some of the biggest opportunities for artificial intelligence in healthcare right now?
  • How do you understand the connection between wearable devices, software, and data?
  • Can you describe our current work supporting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Mission Daybreak program?
  • How does the future of health portfolio relate to Luminary Labs’ other focus areas?
  • Describe how Luminary Labs uses open innovation to support innovation in health, from foundational science and early development, all the way through to commercialization.
  • In what other ways do we support clients in the healthcare sector?
  • Can you tell us more about the current open roles on the Luminary Labs team?
  • Can you describe your career background and how you came to work as a consultant?
