Jeff Hansen is a University Innovation Fellow working to promote interdisciplinary collaboration at the University of Notre Dame. In partnership with the Epicenter leaders at Stanford University and VentureWell (formerly NCIIA), he hopes to expand the ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation to all students.
In conjunction with these efforts, Jeff is a senior pursuing a degree in Biological Sciences and is currently applying to MD/PhD programs. With this dual degree, Jeff will combine research, medicine and education to fight disease from different angles. He hopes to apply these efforts in the setting of type 1 diabetes; this passion stems from several family members with the disease. By working at a research hospital, he can treat, prevent and educate towards the cure.
