Tim Guilliams and David Brown, Healx, AI for Rare Diseases
On this episode, I speak with Tim Guilliams and David Brown of Healx. Healx uses AI to repurpose existing drugs for rare diseases. They claim their approach can bring new treatments to patients 80% faster and 90% cheaper. On this episode, you’ll learn how rare diseases are surprisingly common, why drug repurposing holds promise to treat them, and how Healx uses AI to do it. And you will, I hope, be inspired by a powerful example of AI's potential in healthcare. This episode is brought to you by BenchSci ( www.benchsci.com ).

Mostapha Benhenda of Startcrowd on AI Drug Discovery Hype
On this episode, I speak with Mostapha Benhenda of Startcrowd ( http://www.startcrowd.club ). In January, Mostapha wrote a controversial article critiquing several research labs ( https://bit.ly/2qINvQ9 ). Some accused him of using the article just to promote his service. Others agreed with his criticisms. A few took steps to address them. I caught up with Mostapha to learn what prompted the article, how the field evolved since he wrote it, where he sees things going, and more.
