STEMONIX PRODUCTS ALLOW DOCTORS TO SEE HOW DRUGS AND HUMAN CELLS REACT WITHOUT RISKING A PERSON’S HEALTH.
Ping Yeh fought a tough battle with blood cancer and survived, but the effects linger five years later.
Yeh is cancer-free, but he still deals with side effects like neuropathy from his first dose of chemotherapy, which was a high-potency regimen that did lots of damage but had almost no positive effect because his body, it turned out, was resistant to the drugs.
“Luckily, I survived
With his background in nanotechnology, Yeh said he knew that potentially damaging medical experiments — what he calls “guinea pig medicine” — didn’t have to take place inside the patient.
He went on to co-found a company called StemoniX, which has capitalized on know-how in nanotech, chemistry, physics, statistics and advanced manufacturing to invent a proprietary way to create and test chemical reactions between drugs and human cells outside of the body.
“That is the future we
