Managing Director, Reva Capital Markets
Margaretta in a word is awesome. I have been fortunate to know her for a number of years and work with her on startups and non-profits. We serve on six advisory boards together and I hear nothing but high praise for her work effort and strong ethics. Margaretta is intelligent and creative. She works hard and smart. She thinks long-term and has an innate ability to execute on near-term projects which will lead to future success. She's a constant learner and reader which leads her to explore and find connections which are pertinent but were not previously thought of by others. When she works on a project, she focuses on it but also allows her mind to think through other permutations about how it could be done. Margaretta doesn't seek the spotlight. She works well with other people and she isn't looking for the limelight.

Enthusiasm, optimism, insight, and honesty describe my wonderful conversations with Margaretta. We met through a mutual interest in deep learning as applied to medical imaging. There are few people who grasp future trends the way she does. My reading list has also become full of new books on AI and emerging technologies because of her. Margaretta serves on the Advisory Board of the AI Precision Health Institute that I co-founded at the University of Hawai‘i Cancer Center. Cheers Margaretta!

If there was a Nobel Prize for excellence in producing and sharing COVID knowledge, Margaretta Colangelo would win it hands down. In fact, Stockholm should probably make note of her just in case. Since January 2020 she has been tirelessly pumping out great medical, scientific, and technical research on COVID-19. The amount, frequency, and quality of data, papers, studies, information, and news coming from Margaretta is nothing short of extraordinary. She’s at her best when illuminating the intersection of AI and COVID. It's fascinating how she takes different threads of research to create an amazing picture of this super-deadly virus in all of its subtle, killing ways and disguises, and how science, like some great global COVID posse, is chasing it down. Collectively, her postings are like a new-age version of Paul de Kruif’s Microbe Hunters - remember that classic book? However, Margaretta’s aren't stories written in hindsight; hers are happening in the here and now, and she takes us along on the hunt. She’s become my go-to source for everything COVID. The work that pours out of her matters a helluva lot to a world scared to death of living in constant fear of plague. She’s amazing. You should check her out.

In my universe of accomplished colleagues and collaborators, Margaretta Colangelo is a singularity. She brings a combination of insightfulness, thirst for knowledge, creativity, energy, and productivity across multiple domains, which in a single person is rarely equaled. Margaretta was an early mover in applying computer technology to enterprise and life sciences. She continues as an authoritative and very articulate voice in the application of machine learning in multiple fields. Margaretta has long been a proponent of and catalyst in the field of aging biology and increasing healthspan. During the Pandemic, she became one of the most prolific and trusted writers on the multifaceted subject of COVID. Margaretta is not just a leader, a technology genius, strategic thinker, internationalist, and gifted writer, she is a humanitarian. She seeks a better world and energetically and creatively works for it across every time zone. Margaretta takes a special interest in helping young people early in their careers. She is genuinely warm, engaging, and energizing. I am among countless people who have greatly benefitted from Margaretta’s astute coaching and encouragement.

Managing Director, Methuselah Fund
Margaretta and I met at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and instantly connected on our visions for living healthier and longer lives. We are both passionate about translating scientific breakthroughs into the clinic and we understand that healthy longevity is now more of an engineering challenge than it ever was. We both agree that more needs to be done in the way of educating the general public on the promise brought forth by living longer and more enjoyable lives. I will always remember something profound Margaretta said to me. She said "When I hear people say that they wouldn't want to live longer, I always think that their perspective would change very quickly if they faced a life-threatening event". Needless to say, all those who meet Margaretta are immediately refreshed by her lively and positive outlook on life because she truly enjoys life. I am proud to say I understand that feeling.

We are so grateful to Margaretta for devoting some of her precious time to enlighten us. Everyone is amazed at her passion and her ability to make complex information understandable to a group of elderly lay people. Thanks Margaretta.

I thank Margaretta so much for her tremendous effort. Her daily summaries of COVID-19 research and review papers are a must-read for me. I am sure many of her followers appreciate her work as much as I do.
Amazing efforts by Margaretta in tracking data and research on the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers of all kinds are finding her posts full of information that is critical for life on earth post pandemic. The posts that she has shared from the time that COVID-19 first surfaced until now are TOP CLASS knowledge enriching posts. I can imagine the efforts she has taken to extract useful information and publish it while keeping readers of all kinds in mind. The words "thank you" are just not enough to acknowledge her for her efforts. We all are grateful to her. I will continue to read her posts until we have victory over COVID 19. Her mission is to serve humanity with her knowledge in all diverse fields so that well informed decisions are taken by individuals, researchers, hospitals, AI firms, pharma companies, and governments. Surely a Nobel Prize for outstanding efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic by an individual in action as a one woman army goes to... Margaretta Colangelo.
Margaretta and I have worked together and attended tech events together for several years. We've discussed everything from our interests, to the future, to the potential of the longevity and Blockchain spheres. A few years ago we attended a Crypto investor event together at Draper University and while the event was full of interesting people, the person who really shined to me was Margaretta. By the end of the day I felt like I'd known Margaretta forever. She is one of the smartest, most charming and welcoming people I’ve ever met. It's an honour to work toward a bright future together with Margaretta.

When Margaretta and I met, we had both independently arrived at the conclusion that blockchain, AI/ML, and other emerging technologies could drastically reduce the 15-17 years it takes medical science to go “from bench to bedside,” putting new treatments into life-saving clinical practice. We discussed her myriad ventures and my new company Science Distributed. We spoke of blockchain and books, computers and cats. She invited me to her think tank. Next, we change the world.
