We are delighted to announce that the Obama Foundation has named Miguel Luengo-Oroz, our founder and ceo, as one of 105 global emerging leaders selected for its Obama Foundation Leaders program.

The program identifies participants from around the world to enhance their leadership skills and scale the impact of their work in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Participating in the Obama Leaders program is an opportunity to learn and share the vision of how to build a future where artificial intelligence is designed responsibly, minimizing risks and putting it to work for people and the planet, starting with accelerating clinical research and bringing diagnostics to all people.

The Obama Foundation Leaders program seeks to inspire, empower and connect emerging leaders in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Europe to change their communities and the world – a challenge aligned with our mission.

Take a look at President Obama’s press release:


SpotLab is a social enterprise that seeks to democratise access to quality diagnostics by bringing artificial intelligence to diseases that are not yet in the digital world. To make this possible, we use exponential and affordable technologies – smartphones, AI and 3D printing – to reduce the time, cost, distance and CO2 footprint of medical diagnostics. Our technology is present in Europe, Latin America and Africa. For more information, visit us at
