GLOBAL HEALTH

Knowledge Transfer from Academia to Industry

Which framework is needed to create an innovation-friendly climate in the healthcare sector - motivating MDs to start their own business?

Created with Sketch.

In the healthcare industry, increased collaboration between the private and public sectors is becoming more important than ever. The private sector has a different working dynamic. As a woman and a physician myself, I am interested in research and development, and entrepreneurship, thus I am involved in various ecosystems in Zurich and Geneva, such as Campus Biotech or the University of Zurich. It is precisely when you bring together medical professionals and companies that groundbreaking new ideas emerge that benefit medicine. How this can work in practice can be seen where clinics, medicine, research, and companies come together. Europe offers opportunities for private-state collaboration in cutting-edge research and industry, and innovation centers are getting more proactively promoted, especially in Switzerland where I am based. London and NYC, for example, have long been hubs for public-private collaboration. For example, there are several college and startup ecosystems supported by the state and cantons. There are clearly defined interfaces between medical research and industrial technology development - a thriving ecosystem that could also be more strongly promoted elsewhere.

With an in-depth background in mental health as well as global health, Dr. Lee's broader mission is to advance transdisciplinarity in medicine and innovate the landscape of healthcare through transdisciplinarity in music, arts and sciences. Arts and music and the knowledge on the effects on the human mind and body are still heavily underrepresented in healthcare, and health education. Since 2019 Miriam has worked as an expert for the World Health Innovation Summit CIC where consultants, companies, and academics collaborate to improve healthcare. Through WHIS we partnered with the UN-Habitat, UN Academic Impact, Interparliamentary Union, and WHO. Its shared mission was to assist and accelerate the SDG implementation process and ensure the world reaches its goal, at the latest by 2030.  The implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals springs from the belief shared by United Nations officials, senior business leaders, and NGOs that a transparent, academically driven index is needed to rank companies and countries on their sustainability practices.

SDG 3: Good Health for all

"True abundance comes from connection. In 2018 we celebrated the Global Health Delivery Intensive Program at Harvard University, a growing network by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard Business School, and Harvard Medical School, in an effort to create an interdisciplinary skill set that will improve how we build health care. We have shared our determination and mutual understanding as a group of over 27 nationalities over several years. Healthcare is the work of many, and we all need to go the extra mile. I have learned from committed leaders who have developed health systems with a dedication that is of a rare humanistic nature - including leaders and representatives from Partners in Health, Seed Global Health, the Abundance Foundation, the Gates Foundation and many others. As a global citizen, being part of the growing Global Health network inspires me to help shape better and more sustainable healthcare. From a futuristic perspective, Global Health is laying the foundation for the future capacities of the healthcare systems we will build not only on our planet, but beyond."

Client testimonials / Music, Sound Vibration and Medicine

"My mentoring session with Dr. Burger has furthered my interest in the field of sound medicine and research. As a current sound meditation practitioner and facilitator, I admire and respect Dr. Burger's encouragement to not only continue to learn more, but to also be an active participant in the area of research. She is highly knowledgeable, open minded and thought provoking. She was very generous with her time and feedback. I look forward to working with her again, and would recommend anyone interested in being coached in this space to do the same."

"I have delved into gong playing through Miriam's compact course Gong Mastery Basics and gained deep insight into the world of sounds and vibrations. I was particularly impressed by Miriam's inexhaustible knowledge from scientific, medical, ethnocultural, psychological, energetic and spiritual backgrounds and the linking of all this content.

I enjoyed every single lesson and now know a variety of gong playing techniques and their possible applications. I also know how to create a deeply relaxing and healing gong session for my coaching clients. I wholeheartedly recommend Miriam from the bottom of my heart and am happy to now be able to offer individual Gong Baths in a wonderful villa in Berlin."

"Dear Miriam, such a great sound meditation with you today. Thank you! For me this was the 1. time having a digital Sound Bath, and I can well imagine that directly in the room with the instruments again more intense effect. As if one would be carried away by the vibrations!"

"I can only recommend the sound, vibration and healing experience with Dr. Miriam Burger. She combines her years of experience and knowledge as a physician with her phenomenal skills as a musician (violinist) and her in-depth knowledge and research in the field of sound healing. 

I will recommend Dr. Burger's work to all my patients here in Zurich, because I feel that what she offers has an extremely positive effect on the nervous system and can really help people achieve deep states of neurological relaxation, triggering the body's natural autoregulatory processes and reducing pain and tension in the body. The human body is 80-85% fluid, and I felt that the vibrations of the gong and crystal bowls were extremely good at passing through fluids and improving the connection and communication between all the cells in my body. I have taken sound baths before, but what Miriam offers is an exceptionally powerful practice.
If you are curious about discovering the healing power of sound baths, Miriam is the perfect person for you. She has an incredible selection of high-quality crystal bowls and gongs. She knows exactly what she is doing and the results I have felt confirm that."

"I had the great fortune to do some mini-coaching with Miriam. At that time I was in the process of reorienting myself and going deeper into the topic of sound and health. Miriam gave me valuable impulses and tips for my further professional development and deepened my knowledge about some medical research results. I am grateful for the coaching with her and the "female empowerment". It gave me a motivational boost to continue my path with Ayurveda, Pranayama and sound healing."

"I want to share with you what an incredibly mind-blowing experience I had with Dr. Miriam Burger: She spontaneously gave me a sound healing session. I can not even describe it - I am moved, touched, blissed out, deeply relaxed, recharged, inspired and motivated.  It was so great... I highly recommend her - go check her out here on Instagram, and keep an eye on all that what's to come! I want to repeat, Miriam, that I am incredibly grateful and blissed-out."
