How can evidence-based medical research solve global health challenges?
In this episode, I sit down with Dr Parisa Glass – Director of Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Deputy Director at the George Institute for Global Health in Sydney.
Parisa discusses why a leading independent medical research institute, like the George Institute, focuses on big issues and major global health challenges, in particular in developing countries. She is passionate about evidence-based research conducted at the Institute that addresses unmet needs globally.
Parisa also explains what is global impact and how it is measured. She discusses how the George Institute supports its (younger) researchers and partners, including local communities, to provide solutions to people who need them. Bringing entrepreneurship to the George Institute, Parisa talks about new ways to harness business expertise, in collaboration with researchers, to create profit-for-purpose businesses, which can achieve big goals, be sustainable and deliver affordable and research-based solutions to patients who need them.
