Dr. Jorge Moll is a well known neurologist, out of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, who is trying to change healthcare for the better good of Brazil. He is a firm believer in human rights. Dr. Moll believes every person deserves a chance at the best and most affordable healthcare possible.
Jorge Moll started his interest in medicine at the Federal University of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in 1994. He then went on to do his residency in Neurology as he remained at the university. As he advanced in his career he also got his Ph.D. in Experimental Pathophysiology (Scholar.google).

They did non-evasive clinical studies involving moral and factual decisions with the help of FMRI technology. The research showed that the brain’s frontal lobe functions different when it comes to emotions. This was the beginning of a life time of brain research for the neurologist.
Dr. Moll knows that it takes ideas and the actions on making them happen that will be a long term benefits for Brazil, and possibly other countries. He understands that the study of regenerative medicine and gene therapy holds a lot of answers in the future study of medicine.
