Jim Harper, PhDCo-FounderSonde Health

Dr. Harper is Vocal Biomarker Program Lead at PureTech Health and co-founder of Sonde Health, a company working at the intersection of technology and biology to transform biological/health information availability. He was previously at MIT Lincoln Laboratory for 15 years where he was a Senior Staff member and led a series of biotechnology prototype and system development teams that identified best-in-class biological sensing technologies and transformed them from laboratory proofs-of-concept to prototypes and systems for national security applications in biodefense, human DNA identification and characterization, and human health and performance. He received his B.S. in Biochemistry from Furman University and his Ph. D. in Biochemistry from the MIT Chemistry Department where he worked in the laboratory of Prof. Peter T. Lansbury Jr. and helped redefine models for the molecular mechanisms of abnormal aggregate formation by proteins associated with Alzheimer's disease. He extended that work to include mechanistic studies of Parkinson's disease as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School in the Center for Neurologic Diseases.
