Dr. Ndao was named among the 20 under 40 young shapers of the future, by the famous academic encyclopedia, Britannica.

The future is unwritten. It is also right around the corner. And if, as science fiction author William Gibson noted, it is not evenly distributed, more and more young people around the world are reaching toward it to shape it, improve it, and make it more equitable. These “shapers of the future” work in many fields and endeavors, embracing every corner and intersection of health and medicine, science and technology, and business and entrepreneurship. They are people of ideas, framing the intellectual questions and concerns that will guide future thought. They are scholars, builders, designers, architects, artists, teachers, writers, musicians, and social leaders. While under the age of 40 (as of January 2021), the 200 shapers of the future that we will highlight in this series have already left their mark on the present, and we expect to see much more invention, innovation, creation, and interpretation from them in the time to come. Click here to read rest of the article.
