a16z Podcast: Taking the Pulse on Bio
4 days ago
As the disciplines of biology and engineering become more and more entwined, what new approaches, ideas, concepts, and businesses become possible? What impact does AI and machine learning have on diagnostics and therapeutics? What new modalities of drugs might we see -- or changes in the way new products go to market?
This conversation between all members of a16z's bio team -- General Partners Vijay Pande and Jorge Conde, Malinka Walalliyadde, and (interviewed by) Jeffrey Low -- takes the pulse of where we are on bio given our second fund, and covers everything from what the shift away away from empirical science towards engineering means for bio, to the new generation of engineering-driven tools such as gene-editing, cell-editing, and even writing DNA, to what we're looking for in entrepreneurs.
