Face to Face Direction
Advising. Visiting. Troubleshooting. Those are the keywords that describe Constanza Curotto's (Corning) day to day work. She joins Marshall and guest host Marc Bickle (Max Planck Dresden) to discuss her winding road from Chile all the way to Amsterdam. She decided early on that she wanted to shift from hands on science to the business side of things. Since the forced incubation period that has come out of the current pandemic, Costanza and her colleagues are teaching themselves to be tech superstars in order to get valuable face to face interaction.

Thinking Like a Computer
Dhash Shrivathsa drills down into what they do at Radix Labs. In response to the SLAS challenge he came up with Operating systems for biology labs, we cook software drugs. He talks about how Radix started off with a joke that went too far and evolved into making software for not software people. Learn about their new approach to the tools you already have and the philosophy of software. His philosophy is that one of the best skills in life is thinking like a computer. Check out Dhash's article about an operating system for the biology lab in Nature.

Helping Scientists Do More
Marshall chats with Mike Tarselli about his birth on a planet far, far away to his rise as Chief Scientific Officer at TetraScience (a SLAS2021 Innovation AveNEW company). Mike discusses his winding journey starting as a pre-med major and eventually careening to his final path - a Ph.D. in Chemistry and the battle scars accumulated from the arduous path to completion. And then hitting the Great Recession! Mike shares his thoughts on the challenge of “Big Data” in life science R&D, from data generation, management, all the way to visualization, and what organizations at the forefront of discovery seek to gain from implementing holistic approaches to data automation. TetraScience, and the Tetra R&D Data Cloud, covers the full lifecycle of R&D data: from acquisition to harmonization, engineering, and downstream analysis with native support for state-of-the-art data science tools.
