George Wang is a SIRUM co-founder and uses his analytical and problem-solving skills honed in science to tackle the complex operations and policy issues of redistributing unused medicine. SIRUM is a 501(c)3 social venture that uses technology to connect surplus drugs with the needs of safety-net pharmacies. SIRUM is committed to developing medicine redistribution programs nationwide, taking advantage of the $4-5 billion of unused, unexpired medicine that would otherwise go to waste. SIRUM’s peer-to-peer platform connects donor and recipient organizations and coordinates donation logistics including itemized drug manifests, tracking and shipping. George graduated with a Ph.D. from Stanford University in Biology and Phi Beta Kappa from The Ohio State University.
