Quy was born in 1981 in Phu Yen. After graduating from Biotechnology, University of Natural Sciences - National University of Ho Chi Minh City, she was offered a chance to work at the university, then reached the position of deputy dean. After that, she went to Germany to study for her doctorate in Medicine - Computational Biology at RWTH Aachen University; and was invited to work as a senior lecturer at Concordia University (Canada) and Stuttgart University (Germany). After 10 years of hard work in the academic environment, she decided to quit her job to "live with the greatest passion of her life". She founded a company specializing in enzyme activity optimization in Germany and developed the second company in Switzerland to retrieve medical data using Blockchain technology for personal health data.
Sharing the secret of a successful start-up, she said: “First of all, young people should define what they want, what their dream is, what their talent is, do the world need that talent, will they get paid for their solutions. If they have answered the above questions and then it's time to think about the career path. They should remember, it is not a walk in the park. You will only achieve worthy results for those who are determined to pursue their path”.

Leaning towards the homeland
Despite building a successful both home and abroad, Dr. Vo Cam Quy always hope to bring her research and creativity to apply in Vietnam, trying to bring her research and creativity to apply in her homeland. In recent years, she has been moving back and forth between Switzerland and Vietnam to persuade domestic hospitals to apply Blockchain technology to care for the poor. In order to promote connections and cooperation between professional scholars, researchers, and Vietnamese students at home and abroad, she also worked as a member of the Board of Directors of various Vietnamese associations around the globe. She also joined the VANET Board of Directors to connect global Vietnamese knowledge; The Association of Vietnam Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global).
"I think it doesn't matter where I live, what I will contribute. My heart is always leaning towards Vietnam and currently doing many projects with AVSE Global to join hands for a prosperous Vietnam. I hope in the very near future, Vietnam will be in the group of developed countries, especially in the field of digitalization," shared Dr. Quy.
