Mendelspod Podcast

Mendelspod was founded in 2011 by Theral Timpson and Ayanna Monteverdi to advance life science research, connecting people and ideas. Influenced by the thinking tools developed by Eli Goldgratt, the founders bring a unique approach to media in the life sciences. With help from our advisors around the industry, Mendelspod goes beyond quick sound bites to create a space for probing conversations and deep insight into the topics and trends which shape the industry's future and therefore our future as a species.

Tumor Evolution in Context with Christina Curtis


If one was going to be a cancer researcher, surely one would want to be Christina Curtis. She’s an associate professor of oncology and genetics at Stanford, and she studies tumor evolution. She’s the Darwin of cancer research. Because scientists can’t see human tumors evolve in real life, in Christina's lab she creates what she calls "virtual tumors that recapitulate the size and spatial properties of an actual tumor...

The History of mRNA Vaccines with Elie Dolgin


"Scientists have been putting RNA into cells through a lipid delivery system for 44 years,” says Elie Dolgin. “And that’s ultimately the vaccine that has gone into millions of arms.” Elie is the author of a recent piece in Nature magazine, The Tangled History of mRNA Vaccines.  He joins us to talk about his quest to uncover the winding journey that led to the cure that is moving the world forward.

Hundreds of Thousands of Biological Molecules Undiscovered in Plant Chemical Space Says Founder of New Drug Discovery Company


“Why do plants make a host of chemicals they don’t use? One answer that has always intrigued me is that, unlike us, they can’t walk up and walk away from an environment they don’t like. Evolution has honed this space for over 400 million years.”

The State of Comprehensive Genomic Profiling at One of America’s Largest Health Systems with Carlo Bifulco


Carlo Bifulco joins us today. He’s an Italian who helped persuade one of America’s largest not-for-profit health systems that providing more genomic information to cancer patients early on was the right thing. With 52 hospitals, over 1,000 physician clinics, more than 120,000 caregivers serving communities across seven states—Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, and Washington—Providence and Carlo have quite a task ahead...
