With a background in molecular biology, Daniel Simon used his Thouron Award to get an MBA from Wharton and now works at the intersection of science and business: He leads business development for pharmaceutical applications for Guardant Health, a Silicon Valley start-up that puts technology developed for digital communications to work for cancer diagnosis, treatment and research. Like many Thourons, he notes that the fellowship has also given him a “rich vein of friendships and inspiration” – and he adds: “Rupert Thouron’s annual Vermont ski vacations for the scholars are legendary.”
