Kristen Ambegaokar has a passion for bringing meaning to the interpretation of data, with the recognition that each point represents a person. This awareness hits close to home as her daughter suffers from an orthopedic condition that will require multiple surgeries throughout her growth. Through her daughter’s diagnosis, Ambegaokar has gained a 360-degree view of the life sciences discipline, a process that has increased her empathy for the individual nature of healthcare and the importance of merging science with soul. 

As medical director on the group medical team at Merge, Ambegaokar provides scientific and strategic support for the development of a diverse range of content for healthcare professionals and patients. She has worked as lead medical across brands in a range of areas, including diagnostics, advanced prostate cancer and B-cell lymphomas.
