Ryan is a physician with experience in the power-sports industry, business management, biochemistry, and medicine. After graduation from the University of Nevada, Ryan’s interests expanded to include working with numerous local physicians, in a molecular biophysics lab, and was grateful to work on the natural history of brain aneurysms at Johns Hopkins. It was during this research and through his medical training that he discovered the immense need for greater technology in medicine. After starting Neurosurgery Residency at Parkland Hospital and training at Johns Hopkins, Ryan chose to pursue this goal of delivering better technologies to practitioners and founded Divyze.
