Computer science teaches a problem-solving paradigm that can be very useful for finding innovative solutions to everyday challenges. Based on his own experience of inventing the world’s first non-invasive flu vaccine, Rameez tells us how he used computer science to identify a problem, tailor a solution to those who needed it most, and recognize when he needed to think out-of-the-box.
Rameez Virji is best known for his patented invention of the world's first non-invasive vaccine delivery system for protein-based viruses, Formulation V720™. Rameez’s career in technology started at the early age of 13 years old, when he founded Big Tree World, a software and web design company. Recognized as one of Canada’s Top 20 Under 20 in 2012, Rameez continues to drive towards his vision with his organization, Medicine for a Better Tomorrow, to make the vaccine pill accessible in third-world countries.
