Mikael Eliasson

Mikael wants to live in a world filled with innovations that keep people healthy and provide him time to indulge in the art and science of cooking, endurance sports, and galaxy hitchhiking. As a healthcare innovator and strategist with more than 20 years of experience, Mikael has traveled (figuratively) the healthcare value chain and (literally) the world in search for innovative opportunities. He is educated as a molecular scientist and neurosurgeon (Harvard/Johns Hopkins) and has worked for Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, Novartis, General Electric, Amgen, Boston Scientific, Aetna, Partner’s Health Care, Monitor Ventures, Aditya Birla Group, Jubilant, Shanghai-Pudong Government, Ostersund’s Municipal Home Care Services and more in search of disruptive innovation. On this journey, he has helped create a handful of multi-billion dollar businesses that improve people’s health. Mikael has now arrived at Roche as the AI Global Head of Strategic Innovation for Product Development where he continues to explore uncharted territories to make things happen.
