Brian Ayers - MD/MBA Candidate

I am a current MD/MBA candidate at the University of Rochester interested in emerging technologies in the healthcare industry. I studied biochemistry and computer science during undergrad and want to be engaged at the intersection of these two fields. I believe there is incredible demand for innovation in the healthcare industry and want to help bring these ideas to fruition.

Besides medicine, my other interests include entrepreneurship and athletics. I founded a clothing and lifestyle brand (www.goodeesclothing) my freshman year in college which was acquired in 2015 before I began medical school. During college I played 4 years of varsity lacrosse and continue to play intramural basketball and football. I'm also an avid software developer with experience in ruby on rails, python, java and R.

I am always interested in new ideas so if there is anything I can do to help do not hesitate to reach out
