Becoming a Healthcare Xplorer is so much more than solving a data challenge: It is a great opportunity to boost your career, to meet inspiring people and last but not least, to realise your idea together with Roche.

Healthcare Xplorers has been a great opportunity to test my skills by solving a real business question. What I especially enjoyed was presenting my idea and receiving direct feedback at the Xplorers Camp. And the best thing: I got the chance to drive my idea further as an intern at Roche!
