Mesoblast Stock Soars on Promise of Cellular Medicine

Longevity is potentially a trillion-dollar industry – until it isn’t, because we can’t keep the vulnerable safe from the latest pandemic. The Woohoo Flu has us distracted from the longevity thesis for a bit as the medical community scrambles to deal with something we can’t control. A lack of information and a fractured population means […]

The Lantern Pharma IPO Raises Some Questions

We recently published a report on seven AI healthcare stocks noting that six were the result of recent IPOs. Of those, two are involved in drug discovery. We’ve written extensively about how machine learning and computational chemistry are speeding up the drug development process and decreasing the likelihood that drugs will fail. It’s all about […]

How Berkeley Lights Enables Synthetic Biology

The human body is such an incredibly complex system that in order to truly understand it, we’ll need to emulate it by creating a digital twin. Last summer, we met with a Hungarian startup called Turbine that’s building digital cells that are so accurate they can mimic wet lab experiments. The next step is to […]

A Nano 3D Printer That Prints Nano-Sized Objects

In a recent article, we wrote about an Israeli 3D printing startup that’s developing their flagship machine “capable of micron-resolution printing, with the capability to print thousands of parts in a single build.” The ability to 3D print objects at a micro or nanoscale opens doors for many new applications. Today, we’re going to look […]

Investing in AI Healthcare Companies and Stocks

How Can Artificial Intelligence Help Healthcare? Throughout the years we’ve been watching AI percolate throughout a diverse range of industries, from fintech and AI-powered investment banking to smart farming technologies. As we noted in our earlier articles on trends in artificial intelligence, healthcare is where machine learning and deep learning will pave the way to a new era of better […]

A Blood Test That Uses Next-Generation Sequencing

If you arrived at this story wondering if someone had found a new way to detect the coronavirus, we’re sorry to disappoint you. This article has no direct connection to the pandemic that is emptying your 401K and threatening the lives of your grandparents, except that we will be talking about viruses, bacteria, and other […]

Nanox Uses Nanofabrication for Digital Medical Imaging 

Big disruptions keep coming in smaller packages. Take the handheld ultrasound machine from Butterfly Network, a startup out of Connecticut that has basically turned a smartphone into a digital medical imaging device. The company found a way to squeeze ultrasound technology onto a single silicon chip – and charge less than $2,000 in the process. The […]

CMR Surgical Deploys Its Surgical Robotic System Versius

In this day and age where we’ve turned over initial medical diagnoses to artificially intelligent bots, it’s hard to imagine a time when technology did not play a central role in healthcare. Yet leeches were still considered high-tech as recently as the 19th century – and are making something of a comeback today in some […]

Merantix: Incubating AI Ideas Into AI Startups

We’ve been researching and writing about disruptive technologies for over a decade now, and every day our inbox fills up with all kinds of emails. While most inquiries come from PR firms and link whores, the remainder runs the gamut: from Catherine in Texas who wants us to help her rent a car, to the schizophrenics […]

AR/VR Data Visualization Takes on Big Data

Regular readers might recall that one of our well-traveled MBAs surfaced in the middle of the Pacific Ocean last year on the Marshall Islands. Between spearfishing for his dinner and throwing back beers with the locals, he managed to write a few articles. What’s even more amazing than the fact that the U.S. tracks space […]
