Xconomy’s EXOME Presents: Bay Area’s Life Science Disruptors

The San Francisco Bay Area is teeming with people, companies, and ideas that aim to shake up the life-sciences status quo. From gene editing to the microbiome, from the frontiers of diagnostics to new interfaces between drugs and digital technology, who is taking the most radical approaches? What are their goals and what is their approach to building great biotech companies? How are the founders working with their leading investors to pursue their disruptive vision?
