From our last meeting

A bi-monthly forum to promote entrepreneurship at the convergence of biology, medicine, and computing.
In addition to hearing industry leaders speak, participants will have the chance to look for collaborators, employees, advisors, customers, or investors.


Our goal is to generate a meeting, interaction and networking forum for academics, industry, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists interested in joining together biology, medicine and computing.

Next meeting

Our eighth meeting will take place on Wednesday May 26 2021, live over Zoom.
The talk is titled "Developing a precision medicine therapy to treat stroke: At the forefront of neuroscience, machine learning, and cloud technology"
featuring Yotam Drechsler, CEO and Co-founder, BrainQ technologies.
BrainQ is developing a cloud-based platform to map brain network activity using explanatory machine learning algorithms to extract biological insights that translate into precision therapies.
