Jose Gomez-Marquez of IIH.mit.edu on HighTechFever TV

I hosted multi-company entrepreneur Jose Gomez-Marquez on my HighTechFever TV show tonight. Jose co-founded both Aerovax and XoutTB prior to his most recent role co-founding and directing Innovations in International Health (IIH) @ MIT. The Aerovax Drug Delivery System is a device for mass delivery of inhalable drugs and vaccines to remote populations. The X out TB program aims to increase TB therapy adherence in developing countries using novel diagnostics and mobile technology. And IIH targets a growing portfolio of innovations spanning fields of work including Vaccines, DisabiliTech, Maternal & Infant Health, Diagnostics, Telemedicine, Therapeutics, Surgical Tools, ICT and more. Especially cool about Jose is the fact that he is a three-time MIT IDEAS Competition winner. And being from Honduras is really helping firm up the concentration of activities happening between MIT and Central America generally.
