DESIGNING MICROBIOME THERAPEUTICS TO HELP CURE CANCER
STEPHANIE CULLER | TEDXSANDIEGOSALON
To this end, Stephanie Culler and her team at Persephone Biome are creating microbiome therapeutics that can help all cancer patients, but most importantly to convert non-responders into responders. Stephanie Culler, Ph.D. is co-founder and CEO of Persephone Biome, which is taking a unique approach to gut microbiome health, understanding and leveraging the rich metabolic capabilities of the microbes themselves to develop targeted nutritional products and better therapeutic drugs.
Stephanie was previously a senior scientist at Genomatica, developing and applying synthetic biology tools toward the engineering of micro-organisms as biocatalysts for the industrial production of sustainable chemicals. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
