Ana Ye Zhang, from nurse to biomedical engineer: 'I have left everything to embark on entrepreneurship
«Nurse and biomedical engineer Ana Ye Zhang (Madrid, 31 years old) is the creator of a medical device that replaces the ostomy bag for people with colon or bladder cancer, Crohn’s disease, or other inflammatory intestinal conditions.
