This "episode" features:
Immune-Prints™ immunotherapy discovery engine
Dave Weitz and Assaf Rotem, Harvard University, and Sol Efroni, Bar Ilan University
The Immune-Prints single cell sequencing platform, combined with a proprietary computational pipeline, enables analysis of patients’ cells to predict response to existing immunotherapies and drive the development of new immune-oncology drugs.

Chad Cowan, Harvard University
Universal donor stem cells generated at Harvard have the potential to overcome immune rejection and enable repair and replacement of diseased and damaged tissue.
Both teams will be seeking feedback regarding application priorities and commercialization models.
