Posted by omeditors | Posted in Healthcare and Technology | Posted on 17-04-2018

Dr. Jorge Moll is a distinguished scientist who studies the brain. He earned his neurological medicine degree from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 1997. In 2003 he graduated from The University of Sao Paulo with his Ph.D. in experimental physiopathology. He now operates his own outfit called the D’Or Institute for Research and Education which is located in Rio de Janeiro.

Dr. Jorge Moll is the president-director of this firm and also has a seat on its governing board. He heads its research and education departments including both the Neuroinformatics Workgroup and the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit.

In an interview he conducted in December 2017, Dr. Jorge Moll said that he grew up wanting to help people who have mental conditions which prevent them from enjoying the life they want to lead. He said he wanted to develop an organization which performed world-class research and did educational outreach to his fellow Brazilian citizens. He says his workdays are mostly spent in meetings where he talks with his peers, students, and associates. He also works with entrepreneurs in other organizations in order to have his business partner with organizations to complete his company’s objectives.

One modern topic which is very interesting to Dr. Jorge Moll is artificial intelligence. He says that he is excited about how machines and brains will likely one day in the future be able to work closely with one another. He is also very interested in both regenerative medicine and gene therapy which is finding increasingly effective ways of treating diseases in far better ways than conventional methods have done. Dr. Jorge Moll says that he keeps close tabs on both the field of healthcare and that of technology and increasingly sees them merging together to improve people’s lives.

If he could give any advice to his younger self, Dr. Jorge Moll says that he would tell himself to not be afraid to give up on ideas that aren’t panning out. It is best to either run with a great idea or, if the idea really isn’t so great, quickly abandon it and move on to something else.
