    Almost every human disease is driven by genetics. So what if we could cure every genetic disease, from Alzheimer's to cancer?


    These may sound like lofty aspirations. But the team at Neubase Therapeutics has developed a method for temporarily modifying disease-causing genes without permanently altering the genome. The backbone of Neubase's technology is also highly adaptable. If successful, the company could only need to make small tweaks to develop a brand new therapy, avoiding years of difficult and expensive clinical trials.


    Tune in to hear more about Neubase's cutting-edge approach and much more!

    Leaps by Bayer & Ada Health

    Leveraging patient data looks to play a very significant role in improving disease prevention and treatment, giving medical professionals more time for their patients, and spotting health trends in populations before they reach epidemic levels.


    But fulling realizing the potential of patient data is not without challenges. Naveen Krishnan of Leaps by Bayer and Daniel Nathrath of Ada Health discuss integration challenges, patient privacy, the promise of better drug trials, and much, much more!

    Going plant-based is one of the best things we can do for the health of our planet. But what about our pets? In the United States, pet food is responsible for 25-30% of the meat industry's environmental footprint. How can we reduce this negative impact while giving our beloved pets the best nutrition?


    Meet Wild Earth, a company feeding pets sustainably with fermented koji, veterinary insight, cell culture, and most importantly, a love of animals! Did you know dogs are omnivores? Did you know you could soon have cell culture chicken for your cats? Tune in to get all your sustainable pet questions answered and more!

    Cemvita Factory: Tara Karimi and Moji Karimi

    Today, CO2 emissions from heavy industries are poisoning our atmosphere and causing climate change. But what if we could capture those CO2 emissions and transform them into valuable products using microbes?


    That's exactly what the team at Cemvita Factory is doing! Based in Houston, the company has engineering microbes to turn carbon into useful products like bioethylene, just like how plants turn CO2 into oxygen through photosynthesis.


    Tune in to hear from Cemvita's founders about how we can use CO2 as a feedstock in our energy transition to Net Zero.

    Humans have been storing information since the Stone Age. And surprisingly, forms of data storage like painting or rock carving have lasted for millennia. The same cannot be said for more modern methods like cassettes and CDs. How can we store our data for the next millennia if our storage systems have shrinking functional lifespans?


    Meet CATALOG, a company working to archive human data in DNA. DNA is one of the most stable molecules we know of and it has a language we can program. Hear how data is stored in DNA, what it takes to fit all of Wikipedia into a test tube, and how we could soon be computing with DNA.

    Phytolon: Halim Jubran and Tal Zeltzer

    Candies, cakes, salad dressing, plant-based meats, butter; all these foods and so many more contain food coloring. Food coloring traditionally came from plants but today it comes from petrochemicals.


    But now, the bioengineering company Phytolon has found a new way to make food colorings sustainably--and affordably!--using microbes!


    Hear from Phytolon's founders about the science behind their breakthrough, how fabrics could be dyed with the same method, and how starting a company in Israel as Jewish and Arab co-founders is bringing communities and families together.
