Founder and President
Dr. David Bach is a Harvard-trained scientist, physician, and serial entrepreneur. After spending a decade maximizing his physical and mental performance, he created the Platypus Institute to bring scientific rigor to, and create commercial applications in, the rapidly expanding arena of applied neuroscience.
Prior to becoming a scientist and physician, Dr. Bach attended Harvard College and Harvard Medical School. He worked as a research scientist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and did his residency training in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.
As a business entrepreneur, David founded and built three healthcare companies, each of which became a $100M enterprise. He has also been a management consultant, a venture capitalist, a competitive martial artist, and a professional cellist.
Dr. Bach has always had a passionate interest in human development. After a successful exit from his third company, David decided to pursue his interest in human development while simultaneously returning to his scientific roots, and with this, he founded the Platypus Institute.
