Jeffrey Aronin has more than 25 years in biotechnology and as a healthcare professional. Championing this team, he believes that Chicago should be one of the most prominent leaders in the biotechnology industry and field. Not only is he the founder, but he is also the co-chairman of the board of MATTER.
Jeffrey Aronin’s passion for patients and their results came while following a physician that treated a young patient suffering from seizures. There were not a lot of treatment options besides major brain surgery, but the doctor at the last moment gave the patient new medicine for the seizures. It worked, and he saw the family’s liberation and euphoria is what led him to biotechnology and medications.
MATTER celebrated its’ third birthday as of February of 2018. CEO Steven Collens announced all of MATTER’s efforts and hard work that paid off the previous year. In 2017, MATTER held 150 educational workshops for people in the medical field. They also helped 21 teams through their mentorship program called “Chicago Innovation Mentors.” Furthermore, they held two improvement challenges and pitched strategic discussions called “Immersions.” They are also recruiting more women for healthcare startup committees called “3.8.”
With Jeffrey Aronin’s goals at the helm of MATTER, there is no slowing down the benefits and good that they are doing. They want to expand to include a larger community of healthcare professionals through education and solve many of today’s medical difficulties.
