#5 – Transforming diagnostics through spatial biology – Déborah Heintze – Lunaphore

Transforming our understanding of how our immune system works and how certain pathologies like cancer unfold: that is the mission to which Lunaphore has committed since 2014. Through a cutting-edge platform capable of accelerating complex staining and imaging procedures, the Swiss startup is pioneering what is now named “spatial biology”, recognized by the journal Nature as Method of the Year 2020. Applicable to many disease areas, the field carries great hopes in bringing to light new insights that will accelerate drug discovery and drive the development of personalized therapies in the long run. Its power resides in the possibility to analyze multiple biomarkers in parallel, while preserving the spatial properties of the tissue studied. Alongside Ata Tuna Ciftlik and Diego Dupouy, Déborah Heintze is one of the three co-founders of Lunaphore. She joined the adventure soon after the completion of her curriculum in biomedical engineering, the same day that an offer was made to her by a large company for a position that would have been synonymous with stability and comfort from the outset. The gamble paid off, as she now leads as Chief Marketing Officer the product and marketing efforts of the startup, which has been recognized many times as one of the most innovative and promising emerging companies in the Swiss ecosystem. She takes us through the origins of the project, explaining how the opportunity to co-found the startup arose, how the technology they developed functions, and how spatial biology will revolutionize the way we understand immunology and the promises it holds in the fight against many diseases. Timeline: 01:50 - Déborah’s background and evolution within Lunaphore since its creation 04:48 - How Lunaphore emerged from a PhD thesis 06:49 - How the opportunity co-found a startup emerged 10:22 - What the technology from Lunaphore is about 12:27 - Paving the way of spatial biology for diagnostic purposes 16:48 - The promise that spatial biology holds in our understanding of pathologies like cancer and how Lunaphore is supporting it 20:04 - The features and functioning of LabSat® and COMET™ 22:50 - Dealing with the analysis of large pathology data volumes 25:24 - Transitioning from research applications to clinical ones 27:50 - Deploying LabSat® and COMET™ in labs while making sure the onboarding remains flawless for users 29:29 - The time and efforts required to build these platforms from scratch up to their market launch 33:37 - Moving towards new applications and disease areas 35:08 - How the technology from Lunaphore is transforming the staining and imaging workflows from labs 38:39 - Evolving as a woman in the medical technology entrepreneurial sphere What we also talked about with Déborah : EPFL Technology Transfer Office Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology CHUV Spatial biology Immunostaining Microfluidics Cytometry Omics DistalMotion Sophia Genetics We cited with Déborah some of the past episodes from “Impulse - Meeting Healthcare Pioneers”: #2 - Treating liver cancer with surgical robotics - Lucien Blondel - Quantum Surgical If you want to know more about Lunaphore, we invite you to consult their website.

#4 – Fighting sepsis with nanoengineered beads to filter the blood – Lukas Langenegger – Hemotune

One consequence of the covid-19 crisis we are still going through is sepsis, a lethal misguided reaction of the immune system following an infection, currently responsible for 11 million deaths yearly on a global scale. Together with his team, Lukas Langenegger is addressing this life-threatening condition using a unique technology leveraging magnetic microscopic beads that enable the filtration of blood and the removal of toxic compounds circulating through the body during such a medical episode. The so-called Hemosystem is akin to a dialysis machine where the traditional membrane filter is replaced by a solution containing these beads. Offering a very large surface area, they are used to selectively trap key toxic compounds known to contribute to sepsis: their removal enables in fact to reestablish the immune balance of the patient, leading to drastically improved outcomes. This disruptive technology has been rewarded and praised multiple times in the Swiss medtech sphere and the media. Lukas himself has already been featured in the German issue of Forbes, as a recognition for the pioneering work and contribution that he and his team are bringing in the fight against this terrible condition. We exchanged with Lukas on his professional path, which started in the world of banking before moving towards chemical engineering and the start of a PhD, which he interrupted after a few months to embrace the entrepreneurial route. He guides us with passion through the genesis of Hemotune, the functioning of the system they have created and the surprising development perspectives that such a platform could allow, from the treatment of cancer up to the extension of our longevity! Timeline: (01:05) - Introduction to Lukas’ background and the origins of Hemotune (02:12) - Transitioning from banking to chemical engineering (04:59) - Quitting a PhD to become an entrepreneur (07:34) - Bringing multiple specialties together to found Hemotune (08:58) - Finding support from the Swiss ecosystem to kick start your own firm (09:49) - Hemotune’s technology and its first indication: sepsis (11:17) - Understanding the mechanisms of sepsis and the lack of current recovery treatment (14:20) - Timing of the intervention for patients using the Hemosystem (15:01) - Current standard of care and keeping patients suffering from sepsis alive (16:22) - Reestablishing the immune balance thanks to the Hemosystem (18:10) - Towards magnetic microscopic beads tailored to each patient (19:56) - The Hemosystem workflow and blood filtering cycles (20:57) - Engineering the magnetic microscopic beads (22:30) - Preventing toxicity from the beads towards the blood (26:00) - The development roadmap of the Hemosystem and its foreseen availability (30:18) - Moving towards other indications (e.g. cancer, autoimmune diseases, longevity) (32:02) - Establishing a new treatment modality at the interface of a drug and a medical device (33:15) - Addressing the burden of antimicrobial resistance What we also talked about with Lukas : Carlos Andrea Mora Corinne Hofer Precision Medicine ETHZ MIT Functional Materials Laboratory from Prof. Wendelin Stark HLA-DR Kurz Gesagt Immune: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive Leo Grünstein Spiden If you want to know more about Hemotune, we invite you to consult their website: https://www.hemotune.ch/ We also invite you to follow their activities on LinkedIn or through their newsletter (subscription link available through the company website).

What is Enterprise Blockchain? How is it Used?

This episode is all about what enterprise blockchain is and how it can be used! We are honored to feature Radhika Inyegar, co-author of the book “Enterprise Blockchain Has Arrived”. She shares with us how the blockchain came about conceptually, the differences between proof of work versus proof of stake, the different roles for permission and permission-less systems, smart contracts and the impact it will have on healthcare. Blockchain is essentially a database that has multiple owners, so everyone sees and has access to the same information. Right now, blockchain is used in the non-PHI side of healthcare.  Blockchain is all about truth and transparency in the transactions involved, and their application to healthcare is going to change the game.  About Rhadika Inyegar Radhika Iyengar is a TEDx and keynote speaker, author, Silicon Valley Woman of Influence, and a serial entrepreneur. She is Founding Partner at StarChain Ventures, a Silicon Valley-based venture studio focused on the convergence of advanced technologies including Blockchain, AI and IoT. She is also Managing Partner of DoubleNova Group, a global advanced tech advisory company based in Silicon Valley. Radhika is a co-author of the critically acclaimed book Enterprise Blockchain Has Arrived. As an enterprise blockchain expert, she has advised companies globally in the healthcare, fintech and supply chain sectors. She is a member of the Government Blockchain Association as well as the California Gov Ops Blockchain Working Group, a task force advising California state legislature, where she has advised on a wide range of areas such as healthcare, life sciences and pharma supply chains, digital identity, privacy, sustainability, and food and agriculture supply chains. Radhika is an Advisory Board Member and Global Ambassador of Blockchain in Healthcare Today (BHTY), the world’s first peer-reviewed journal on blockchain in healthcare. Key Take-aways  The Internet changed the world, and blockchain is on its way to do the same.  Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology which allows multiple owners to have ownership of the data that's within it. Once a change is made in a blockchain, it is immutable.  In blockchain all of the blocks of information are tied to each other.  Blockchain does not store data, it stores the hash of the record.  Guest Links and Resources: Connect and Follow Radhika on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/radhikaiyengar13/  Follow Radhika on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RIyengar13  Grab your copy of the book “Enterprise Blockchain Has Arrived” by Radhika Inyegar and Jorden Woods here: https://www.amazon.com/Enterprise-Blockchain-Has-Arrived-Deployments-ebook/dp/B07Z3LJCHW
