"Philip Edgcumbe was exactly the kind of person we looked for to speak at our 7th annual INTERFACE Summit 2018 conference in Vancouver, Canada – and our audience loved him. He engaged them with his ideas and spoke with passion and a keen mind on a health topic – Alzheimer’s and dementia  and the use of VR/AR and A.I. and Digital Therapeutics – that will likely affect all of us, either as sufferers or as caregivers, if we live long enough."

10-James-Charbonneau

“It is always a pleasure to have a Science One alumnus like Philip come back to speak to the class. His talk in which he facilitated a discussion on Exponential Growth and then talked about his own career path from Science One to Clinician-Scientist, was one of the most inspirational of the year. Not only can students see their own potential reflected in Philip, but he very poignantly encouraged them to meaningfully think about their career path and the impact they want to have on the future. It's a message that is needed when student are often so worried about the fine details of their schooling, rather than the big picture”
