Innovation Hub's Lesley Solomon: From Hackathon to Health Care
Lesley Solomon is executive director of the Innovation Hub at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and director of strategy and innovation in the Brigham Research Institute, positions that put her at the forefront of discovery at one of the world's leading medical institutions.
She works to create and expand relationships between Brigham researchers and innovators in biotech, pharma and other academic centers, while building the hospital's reputation for research leadership. She established the Innovation Hub in 2013 to bring together collaborators to identify creative solutions to health care problems – and transform them from ideas to solutions that can be sold in the marketplace.
