Laura Martini works at the intersection of healthcare and tech. She finds joy in making complex systems simple, and has built design teams at two startups: Medisas, which makes next-generation software for the people who care for patients in hospitals; and Counsyl, which helps people with a family history of cancer and expecting parents understand their DNA.
Laura has done product design at Apple and IDEO in addition to her healthcare work. She studied human-centered design at MIT and Stanford, where she has received degrees in Mechanical Engineering, Product Development, and Anthropology.
When she’s not busy building design teams, Laura has had the opportunity to speak on design and healthcare at a number of venues, including An Event Apart, SXSW, Health 2.0, Stanford Medicine X, IxDA South America (ISA), Berkeley, MIT and The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC).
