Andreea Serban: KIDoc and PhylloPharma

Andreea Serban is a doctor specialising in paediatric surgery and an entrepreneur who’s founded her own healthtech, KIDoc, and joined another, PhylloPharma, as chief operating officer. She’s also a 2022 fellow of the Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders, a US Department of State programme that invites young entrepreneurs from Europe to the United States, that brought her to the University of Pennsylvania and introduced her to her mentor Michael Poisel, a previous guest on this show.

But she’s not only spent time in the US or her native Romania, she’s also been at various institutions in Paris, like Institut Pasteur, in Luxembourg, where she was a resident at the children’s hospital Kannerklinik, and in the UK, where she worked at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Andreea is, as long-time listeners will recognise, the first founder on the podcast, so this episode is a little different — but it’s incredibly fascinating and we cover everything from a fledgling tech transfer infrastructure in Romania to tax incentives to what the US could learn from Romanian communication skills.
