Balaji S Srinivasan may join Trump's team

Balaji S Srinivasan, or BSS as he calls himself on his personal blog, is the founder of two early-stage Silicon Valley startups: bitcoin payments company 21 Inc and Counsyl, which helps determine Down syndrome in unborn babies. BSS, who in a 2013 YouTube video says his dad had left India because the country "was an economic basket case," has been in news for the past two days for being a potential candidate to take up the top job at the US food and drug regulator.

The pharma world is surprised by this possible choice as President-elect Donald Trump gets ready to induct his team in Washington's top positions. He isn't a medical doctor, which most Food and Drug Administration (FDA) chiefs were. The current commissioner, Robert Califf, is a cardiologist.
