Technology, business and entrepreneurship go hand-in-hand more often than not in the modern era. Eric Pulier is a fine example of how this rings true more and more as time goes on.
Eric Pulier is a native of New Jersey, being raised in Teaneck. As early as the fourth grade he took a heavy interest in computers, starting by programming computers and even going so far as to found his own database company by the time he got to high school. He graduated high school in 1984 and attended Harvard University, majoring in English and American literature while also taking classes in computer science and visual and environmental studies. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard in 1988.
Upon finished his undergraduate career, Pulier moved to Los Angeles in 1991 and began starting a career in founding companies, starting with the creation of People Doing Things (PDT) in that year. The company was made to address problems such as health care and education through the use of the latest technology at the time. Three years later in 1994, Pulier went on to found another company called Digital Evolution, which was an interactive technology agency that eventually became part of the US Interactive LLC in 1998. He found himself later creating many other companies including Akana in 2001, Media Platform, Inc. in 2007, ServiceMesh, Inc. in 2008 and FLF in 2015.
Despite making a career as a leading founder for companies that utilize technology, Eric Pulier has also proven to be quite a philanthropist. For example, one of his first ventures was working with the Multiple Sclerosis Society and designing one of the first multimedia programs that was meant to educate those people who suffer from multiple sclerosis and interact with that system. Additionally, Pulier was also a donor and collaborator for the Campaign for Free College Tuition. The group was one that was created by a former member of Vice President Al Gore’ domestic policy and was tasked with finding a way to make free college accessible to all Americans. Pulier is even a member of the X-Prize Foundation board.

For those people who were locked up at the time, they were introduced to a system which would help to control and eliminate the use of contraband cell phones while in jail. In order to help make the system better, over 5 different department of corrections facilities were granted approval to use cell defender. In a ploy to help to eliminate contraband cell phones, the wireless containment solution was enacted to help to keep contraband cell phones from being able to connect to a wireless or mobile network within the prison walls.

New clinical trials show evidence an immunosuppressive therapy combined with the transplant of a persons own stem cells can help trigger remission in multiple sclerosis. This autoimmune disease attacks the bodies central nervous system. In a trial 69 percent of the patients had no progression of the disability, new brain lesions or a relapse. The participants did not use any MS medications after the trial since some studies have shown the current MS drugs have a lower rate of success. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases sponsored the trial which was called HALT-MS.
The symptoms of MS vary and can include difficulties with speech and motor capabilities, fatigue, weakness and chronic pain. Relapse remitting MS is the most common type and characterized with periods where the symptoms are mild or nonexistent. These periods are interspersed with relapses and reoccurrences of the symptoms. Over time the disease can become worse and shift into progressive MS.
During HALT-MS the researchers conducted tests regarding the efficacy, safety and durability of the treatment. There were 24 volunteers who were experiencing severe relapses, neurological disabilities and inflammation despite the MS drugs they were taking. The treatment removes cells that cause disease and resets the bodies immune system. Chemotherapy is used to deplete the patients immune system then it is rebuilt using their stem cells. There are some risks and possible side effects to this treatment.
