My name is Bertalan Mesko, MD, PhD and I graduated from the University of Debrecen, Medical School and Health Science center with Weszprémy Award as a medical doctor in 2009 and finished PhD in the field of clinical genomics focusing on the pharmacogenomic applications of autoimmune conditions in 2012 with summa cum laude.

I’m a medical futurist with a mission to fill the gap between healthcare and digital technologies.

I’m the managing director and founder of Webicina.com, the first service that curates the medical and health-related social media resources free of charge for patients and medical professionals. I’ have given over 300 presentations from the Yale, Stanford and Harvard University to the centre of the World Health Organization and the Futuremed course organized by the Singularity University; and also a health 2.0 consultant for pharma and medical technology companies. Healthspottr.com included me in the Future Health Top 100 list.

I’m the author of the multiple award-winning medical blog, Scienceroll.com; and the founder and lecturer of the Social Media in Medicine online and offline university credit course which is the first of its kind worldwide.

My work was mentioned by the World Health Organization, Nature Medicine, the New York Times, Al Jazeera, British Medical Journal and Wired Science, among others.

I’m a member of Mensa International and the Kairos Society; and an External advisor at Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media.
