#14 – Preserving our health with smart clothes – Vincent Martinez – Nanoleq

Will the next revolution in personalized health be led by connected clothes? This is the bet that Vincent Martinez and his team at Nanoleq are making, and they are putting all their efforts into turning their vision into reality! Originally, their idea was to target the cable industry with a proprietary technology enabling to create stretchable cables, with superior physical and electrical properties. The targeted companies being too slow in their adoption of the proposed approach, Vincent and his team decide to tackle the field of connected clothing, by proposing a set of components and tools enabling any clothing manufacturer to turn their garments into smart ones, able to measure multiple vital parameters but also to electrically stimulate certain regions of the body. Building upon their expertise in this space, they developed the first breathing smart garment with live biofeedback - Oxa - around which they designed a whole personalized program for everyone to reconnect to their body through breathing, the only vital sign we can consciously control. We talked with Vincent about the emergence of connected clothes and what role they will play in the preservation of our health, how stretchable electronics work, and how Nanoleq managed to develop a full breathing experience combining cutting-edge sensors with gamification, backed by the most renown ambassadors in the field. Timeline: 00:58 - Vincent’s background at the interface of materials science and biomedical engineering 02:57 - Launching a company to address the premature breakage of electronic cables 07:45 - What lies behind the term « stretchable electronics » 09:55 - Shifting the focus towards smart textiles 19:48 - The vision of Nanoleq around connected health 24:05 - Starting a new product line focused on breathing optimization: Oxa Life 35:00 - Federating a community of breathing specialists 37:46 - Making the most personalised and digitally engaging breathing optimization program 44:14 - Towards everyday wear of smart clothes What we also talked about with Vincent: ETH Pioneer Fellowships Luca Hirt Grégoire Courtine Start Summit Venture Kick Venture Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) Wim Hof Sleep apnea Dan Brulé Headspace Petit Bambou Andrew Huberman We cited with Vincent some of the past episodes from the series: #6 - Bringing back walking to paraplegics - Jocelyne Bloch - .NeuroRestore #11 - Turning the lab into a wearable platform - Esmeralda Megally - Xsensio As mentioned in the episode, you can learn more about Nanoleq and the field of stretchable electronics through their website. The Kickstarter campaign for Oxa runs until Sunday December 18 and you can contribute to it at this page! For more information about Oxa, check out the official product page: www.oxalife.com.

#13 – Catalyzing drug discovery using organ-on-a-chip models – Bas Trietsch – Mimetas

Developing a new drug is a tough and strenuous endeavour, requiring investments that go beyond $1 billion and sometimes up to 15 years of time. On top of that, only 1 out of 10 drug candidates successfully passes clinical trial testing and regulatory approval. The Dutch company Mimetas, specialized in the use of organ-on-a-chip technology, aims to address exactly this challenge by accelerating this laborious process and making it more predictable. Their expertise actually lies in the development of in-vitro human tissue models (including diseases) which recapitulate the cellular complexity but also the biochemical and mechanical cues that make up the real tissues from our body. Such models can then be used as a powerful experimental platform for drug discovery, since they reflect our actual biology so well. Bas Triestch is one of the three founders from Mimetas (alongside Jos Joore and Paul Vulto) who saw in the early 2010s the potential to leverage organ-on-a-chip methods at scale for the benefit of drug discovery, leading them to become the most innovative Dutch company in 2022! In this episode, Bas takes us behind the scenes of the fascinating science that they are driving at Mimetas, the impact that they are having on the R&D efforts from some of the biggest players in the biotech industry, but also the shift that they have operated as a company, starting as a “hardware” provider and gradually becoming a specialized scientific service firm. Timeline: 01:35 - Bas’ background and the origins of Mimetas centered around new drug discovery approaches 05:31 - What organ-on-a-chip technology means and how it serves the development of new human tissue and disease models 09:05 - The OrganoPlate® as the key platform providing scalability and reproducibility for the study of such models 15:40 - Merging organoids and organ-on-a-chip technologies in a unique platform, the OrganoPlate® Graft 24:03 - Moving from better understanding diseases, through medication guidance, and up to personalized medicine 28:47 - Mimetas’ mission in accelerating the development of new treatments and finding the right drugs for the right patients 34:50 - Dealing with substantial amount of experimental data 39:24 - Shifting Mimetas’ business model from selling hardware components to offering specialized scientific services in the field of drug discovery What we also talked about with Bas: Leiden University Hans Clevers Roche Galapagos Trans-Epithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER) Wnt signaling pathway We cited with Bas some of the past episodes from the series: #5 - Transforming diagnostics through spatial biology - Déborah Heintze - Lunaphore #8 - Using organoids to transform drug discovery - Nikolce Gjorevski - Roche As mentioned in the episode, you can learn more about Mimetas and the field of organ-on-a-chip engineering through their website. Based on Bas’ recommendation, we also invite you to check out this review to get a deeper understanding of the field and where it stands at the moment.

DOCSF22: Digital Transformation: Integrating Technology

Digital transformation not only regards technology; it's about the intersection of technology with people and processes. In this episode, Paul Limbrey, Managing Director for Global Agencies and Partners at Google, talks about digital transformation and key things he's learned about the successful implementation of new technology in any system. He breaks down four good things that result when landing a digital transformation effort inside a large organization. The first step he mentions is having a change strategy for the transformation in mind. Think of everything that could go wrong, processes related to data and information flows, policy implications, and your human capital capabilities. The next one is having a visible and active executive sponsor. He talks about identifying agents of change within the organization who might have in them to drive the transformation forward and then looking for someone who might have genuine power to back them up, as the number one reason why projects fail in corporations is the lack of one. The next step is building coalitions, for which Paul encourages everyone to engage with the middle managers. It’s essential to find support in the people that are data-driven and want to understand why transformation is good instead of those who are experience-driven and are comfortable with the status quo. The final step is having a plan for the end state. Here, he discusses pilots and how they can be a double-edged sword as many companies get stuck in developing many pilots but never implementing successful ones. This is why there must be a plan to ensure that successful pilots are scaled up and move to the standard business servicing teams, putting innovation into action. Many great ideas can drive innovation. Listen to this episode to learn from Paul how to do tech integration to face those challenges companies face with adoption for digital transformation!

DOCSF22: Innovation in Healthcare Part 2

In this episode, Katya Hancock, partner, and director of StartUp Health Network at StartUp Health introduces two of their companies and what they're doing in healthcare. She also shares their moonshots: big health challenges of our time. Victor Wang, CEO of care.coach talks about how his company is solving the caregiver crisis with pet avatars. Nicolas Rosencovich, CEO and co-founder of MindCo Health, speaks about how his company uses VR technology as a new approach to behavioral and mental health treatments. Care.Coach combines knowledge from a global team of humans with artificial intelligence in a talking cat or dog avatar that has conversational intelligence making it fun, lighthearted, non-judgmental, compassionate, and empathetic. Its goal is to coach people, primarily seniors discharged from a medical facility, to take better care of themselves. They have reduced the need for nursing home visits, trips to the ER and acute care centers, and loneliness. These pet avatars are currently offered through health plans and will improve members’ self-care experiences. MindCo Health uses virtual reality to immerse the brain and body of individuals in situations that will trigger different sensations and emotions so that they can consciously train and change their behavior. They have used this technology for smoking cessation, stress management, burnout, and preventative treatments. With the help of VR, they recreate scenarios that trigger sensations of guilt, frustration, and other emotions related to the target behavior. These also combine exposure therapy with mindfulness interventions to create awareness and change the automatic pilot mode through breathing exercises. Mind Co Health alleviates the cost of behavioral health therapy as this approach is delivered at home and eliminates the need for appointments. Listen to the conversation Victor and Nicholas have with Katya about their startups. Learn why they are part of StartUp health as they aim to make big changes in healthcare with care.coach and MindCo Health!
