An Insider's view of Linus Health

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the most exciting projects is our work with the Davos Alzheimer’s Consortium, a partnership between industry, academic, government and healthcare systems around the world. Here, the Linus smartphone research app will be used to bring together digital measures of cognition from up to 1 million participants from cohorts around the world.


Vice President, Strategic Engagements

What makes someone successful on your team?

Passion – One thing that I find all my teammates have in common is passion for what they do. Whether it's improving the product, or delivering the best experience to our customers, everyone is motivated by the same passion and determination. At Linus Health there is opportunity for success within every department and at every.


Program Manager, PRD

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

An expert clinician knows by the way you’re walking if the pain is in the knee, back or hip. It’s similar for cognitive assessments; in the first few seconds, they know where you are going. Linus is not just “digital health”; we translate the compassionate eye of your best clinician into assessments and algorithms. And we’re only getting started.


Vice President, Clinical Development

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about Linus Health’s exploration of remote and passive assessment technologies — from home-based EEG to eye tracking brain games — that will completely change how individuals keep their brains healthier as we age. Digital brain health is one of the most exciting areas of science and tech advancement happening today.
