Balázs Rózsa

Doctor of Medicine and Physics

It was two decades ago that Balázs built his first microscope from discarded parts, and shortly after, he founded Femtonics, a firm dedicated to making visible what the eye can't see. Today, he leads a team of over 100 people whose products are used by research centres and universities like MIT, Yale, and Columbia. In recent years, Balázs has revolutionized cancer diagnostics with his AI-powered microscopes and has also worked on curing blindness. His company's latest flagship product aids in understanding brain processes - what's more, it is the fastest device of its kind globally, capable of mapping and imaging emotions and thoughts almost in real time.
