about this episode

Today’s show is one of Jason’s favorites. He talks with the brilliant Elizabeth Iorns, part-time Partner at YCombinator and CEO/Cofounder of Science Exchange, an online marketplace matching researchers with labs. We learn exactly how ScienceExchange is revitalizing discovery by providing scientists with new tools for experiments while also bringing new revenue to the labs conducting them. It’s a fascinating discussion covering what we know and don’t know about cancer, what’s surging in science research and what’s holding it back (looking at you, paywalls), where in the world are the most exciting experiments, how YCombinator is supporting science initiatives, what the field will look like in 10-20 years, our next great seismic jumps in knowledge — and much more.
