    #059 Meritocracy — Prof Sir John Burn

    #059 Meritocracy — Prof Sir John Burn

    Professor Sir John Burn is Professor of Clinical Genetics at Newcastle University, a Non-Executive Director of NHS England and Vice Chairman of QuantumDx.

    His story is fascinating and slightly unusual — because he began life from humble beginnings in a small village in the North East of England.

    We talk about meritocracy, how to be a showman and why business and clinical academia are really very similar.

    I hope you enjoy.

    #055 Getting Punched in the Face — Adnan Iqbal (CEO Luma Health)

    #055 Getting Punched in the Face — Adnan Iqbal (CEO Luma Health)

    Founding a company is like getting punched in the face, a lot.

    Adnan Iqbal is CEO and Co-Founder at Luma Health; a company which better connects patients and doctors. He’s raised over $30M and scaled to over 450 US health systems and clinics.

    Adnan studied Biology at Berkeley, then did his masters at Cambridge before working at Genentech — a large US biotech company. He then went to the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and that’s when him and his co-founder Tashfeen Ekram (a medical doctor) started working on Luma.

    This episode is littered with gems of advice from Adnan, and we spend a lot of time talking about the early days of Luma — and how he got those initial customers onboard. We also discuss some of his thinking and decision making as CEO, and what it’s like to be a Pakistani dude in Silicon Valley.

    I hope you enjoy.

Should be mandatory module in Med school

A must listen podcast for all doctors/Med students. Amazing range of guests well interviewed with impeccable production. Well done.

Informative, inspiring and entertaining

I love this podcast - Mustafa asks really interesting questions that touch on some very profound topics in an easily digestible way.

Unlike many interviews that simply serve to promote the work of interviewees Mustafa asks the questions that many don’t, and has incredibly diverse guests.

Highly recommended for every doctor out there - the sort of thing that will inspire many to pursue their entrepreneurial / innovation passions whilst staying in the health system.
