Mazi Rasulnia refuses to do things the same way everyone else does just because everyone else is doing it.

Perfect example – who he employs.

Rasulnia’s company, Pack Health, is a team of health advisors (think financial advisors for your health) that provide personal, one-on-one service to members.

So what does that have to do with the UAB Biotechnology program? Everything.

The knowledge to take scientific ideas to the people. The skills to manage others in health care. And the understanding of the processes that make medicines work and how they react.

And that is why, in only two years, one UAB Biotech grad has risen to Manager of Strategic Partnerships at Pack Health.
