Hirsch: I Dropped Out of Stanford to Start Syapse 

 

Jonathan Hirsch was studying neuroscience at Stanford University when he wandered into two oncology classes and saw an opportunity to change the way health systems handle genomic data.

“I started getting really immersed in molecular oncology, and the challenges in implementing molecularly guided treatment started coming together with the challenges in utilizing complex data,” Hirsch said to The Cancer Letter.

“During one of my Stanford classes, I said, ‘I think that there is a company to be built here,’ and I dropped out of grad school and started Syapse.”
