Nuvera is Excited to Welcome Jordan Yang to the Team!

Jordan joined Nuvera after obtaining his Ph.D. degree in computational biology from Brown University. Throughout his tenure at Brown, he developed various statistical/computational (e.g., machine learning) models to investigate protein’s biophysical and biochemical properties, which alludes to mapping out a complete comprehension of protein evolution. He specialized in predicting the effects of protein variants via scaffolding properties using a variety of computational/theoretical approaches. Originally trained as a computational chemist in college, he matriculated at Brown in 2017, obtained a master’s degree in computer science in 2019, and subsequently a doctorate in 2022. 

Motivations for joining Nuvera

From a patient perspective, I have witnessed and experienced firsthand the intricacy and complexity of the US healthcare system, appreciated the challenges and barriers patients need to endure and overcome during their course of treatment and echoed some revolutionary changes proposed by both the government and drug manufactures. Being part of Nuvera, a consulting firm specializing in developing and optimizing patient/HCP support programs, not only do I get to work with a broad selection of specialty pharmaceutical, biotech, and rare disease companies to uncover/diagnose an entity/brand’s most critical challenges, but I also have the opportunity to develop the strategies to build, maintain, and enhance them.

Nuvera is Excited to Welcome New Employee, Lindy Vicari!

Lindy graduated from Boston College’s Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences with a B.S. in Biochemistry. He is passionate about life sciences and biotechnology, specifically where innovation and market trends intersect to drive new solutions while also enriching the patient experience. Prior to graduation, Lindy held summer internships in the pharmaceutical and healthcare spaces and conducted biomechanics research for the Kenaley Lab in Boston College’s Biology Department. Before coming to Nuvera, Lindy worked as a laboratory technician in the material test lab at Teleflex.

Lindy is originally from eastern Pennsylvania. After playing competitive ice hockey for almost 20 years, he now enjoys golfing with his friends and riding his bike outdoors. He is an avid explorer, and looks forward to visiting new hiking mountains and trails in the Northeast and Midwest this summer. He is also a lover of games and puzzles, and rarely goes a day without completing the latest Wordle or Sudoku puzzle. 

Motivation for Joining Nuvera

I have a passion for improving the quality-of-care patients receive along their treatment journeys. During an internship at Shriners Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, I witnessed first-hand the dedication and compassion it requires to not only help patients realize health milestones but also tackle the complexities of healthcare administration, education, access, and delivery. It takes a lot of creativity and personalized planning to craft the best patient experience, and this is how Nuvera approaches the work it does for its clients every day. I was excited by the opportunity to be on the strategic side of breaking down care barriers while also immersing myself in a culture of patient-centricity. I am thrilled to learn and grow alongside respected leaders in the healthcare space!
