"Impatient to change the world."

That's how Forbes describes the individuals recognized in its year-end "30 under 30" feature, 15 lists of the "brightest stars" under the age of 30 in fields ranging from Finance to Hollywood to Games & Apps.

Isaac Kinde, 29, an MD-PhD candidate at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, was among those selected for the Science & Healthcare list.
