Dr. Travis Stiles is the CEO and co-founder of Novoron Bioscience, which is developing therapeutics to reverse damage caused by debilitating neurodegenerative conditions such as spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis. In addition to his scientific expertise, Dr. Stiles has become a passionate advocate and promoter of innovation to improve the human condition.

Inspired by the loss of a friend to ALS, Dr. Stiles embarked on a biomedical research path, which led to groundbreaking neuroscientific work and multiple novel discoveries. Along that path, Dr. Stiles became intimately aware of cultural and systemic factors that can impede innovation.  He now speaks across a wide and diverse spectrum to encourage ideas and policies that address these short-comings. Whether discussing the psychological aspects of “imposter syndrome,” identifying and debating policies that obstruct innovation, or championing ideas based on merit and regardless of where they originated, Dr. Stiles seeks to overcome the barriers to innovation and promote societal advancement.

A member of the Cherokee nation, Dr. Stiles is a champion for diversity, equality, science, and informed solutions to the world’s problems. His goal is to inspire the world’s next generation to advocate for positive changes that will empower innovators and catalyze a better future.

24 cents out of every tax dollar go to defense spending.

One cent goes to science and research.

This is a massive problem. In 1963, fully 3.5% of gross domestic product was spent on science and research. Now? Zero, point six %. Defense spending accounts for fully 21% of GDP.

I stand in solidarity with Muslims in New Zealand 🇳🇿 & around the world. No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship. How & when do we address theses acts of terrorism, motivated by hate, intolerance, & white nationalism, as an #Epidemic? #ChristChurch

Every single word of this.

“The most dishonest thing I could say today is that I am shocked by this attack.”😓


#NZ is a shining example of a modern country that has embraced their indigenous history and multiculturalism. Hate will not break that.
But hate thrives in silence and metastasizes when unchallenged.
We MUST be vigilant and rise to the occassion
#Christchurch #HateHasNoPlace

Anti-immigrant rhetoric is wrong.
We have to be better.

I absolutely loved Christchurch. Such great people and city. My heart breaks for that community tonight after hearing about the heinous terrorist attack.

I handed @CFPBDirector Kraninger a calculator and asked her to calculate the APR on a payday loan. She couldn’t. And she’s supposed to be the top government official protecting consumers from predatory lending practices?
