Steven Keating has developed novel platforms for 3D printing buildings, biological wearables, and designed growth of the next generation of products through his doctoral work at MIT. Curiosity drove his research and also saved his life through the accidental discovery of a large astrocytoma brain tumor found in a voluntary academic scan. With his tumor successfully removed through awake brain surgery in 2014, Keating is an advocate for open patient data and curiosity. From gears to genomes, he is interested in exploring new design possibilities, open health data networks, and asking if we can have a “share” button for health. His work has been covered by outlets such as The New York Times, CNN, and The Boston Globe. Keating is on the Board of Directors for the Open Humans Foundation, has participated as a member of the Precision Medicine Task Force, and he was recently named on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Healthcare.
