We’re excited to partner with Ag-West bio and present a special episode for Global Biotech Week 2020!

To celebrate Global Biotech Week, we’ve interviewed three biotech entrepreneurs, based here in Saskatchewan, to learn more about what they do, and what makes biotech different from the typical startup experience.

First in today’s episode, we talked with Shawn Ritchie, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer of Med-Life Discoveries, a leader in developing novel treatments for Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, MS, and more.

Next up is Masood Rizvi, Head of Genomics at NRGene Canada, a biotech startup that’s optimizing crop production through genomic AI solutions.

Last but not least, we talked with Brent Zettl, a pioneer in the Canadian medical cannabis industry, having co-founded CanniMed Therapeutics that was acquired for 1.2 billion dollars, who has since started his new venture, ZYUS, harnessing the power of cannabinoids to develop treatments that improve quality of life and well-being for patients.
