Date:4/14/2009

institutional responsibility, health -- the negative impact of these urgent threats makes their challenges a whole lot tougher. Clearly, these are mutually reinforcing ventures."

Skoll's private company, Participant Media, produces movies such as "An Inconvenient Truth" and "The Kite Runner" and other content designed to inform and inspire audiences, with the goal of driving public engagement to make positive change. In addition, Skoll's multi-billion dollar financial services firm, Capricorn Investment Group, brings a principled approach to its investment discipline. In his capacity as senior adviser to Skoll, Brilliant will seek opportunities to leverage these organizations and relationships to further drive positive change in the urgent threat areas.

About Dr. Larry Brilliant

Brilliant served a three-year stint as the first executive director of Google.org, the company's philanthropic arm before becoming chief philanthropy evangelist for Google. He is an M.D. and M.P.H., board-certified in preventive medicine, epidemiology and public health. He was one of a four-person international team that led the successful World Health Organization smallpox eradication program in India and South Asia. He later founded the Seva Foundation of Berkeley, California, which works in dozens of countries around the world to eliminate preventable and curable blindness. Seva's projects have given back sight to nearly 3 million people. Last year, Time magazine named Brilliant one of the 20 most influential scientists and thinkers and one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Brilliant co-founded The Well, a pioneering virtual community, with Stewart Brand in 1985. He also holds a telecom systems patent and has served as CEO of public and venture-backed technology companies.

Earlier in his career, he was a professor of international health and epidemiology at the University of Michigan'/>"/>
