Our insights on the latest developments in life sciences

Our experts and clients love to share their valuable insights about the latest developments in life sciences. We monitor transformative breakthroughs, put them into perspective and highlight the field’s opportunities and challenges.

AI in healthcare

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will become increasingly important in the healthcare sector for different reasons. Currently, there is an urgent need for innovations that assist clinicians in making informed decisions for personalised medicine. 

Broadly, the healthcare system needs to become more efficient and health professionals need to be more productive. AI has the potential to address these needs using real-world data to develop a learning healthcare system. Altogether, AI will likely play a role in managing healthcare costs in a sustainable way.

In our series of publications about AI we reflect on these developments to guide life sciences researchers, entrepreneurs and clinicians in their efforts to transform healthcare with AI.

It is very hard for an expert like me to decide on the right strategy, to define our long-term goals, how to plan for it and who to work with. ttopstart has been a great partner for me in this process”


Anti-microbial resistance

We are still in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis, but another potentially larger crisis is ahead that threatens our global healthcare system; the anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis. Whilst COVID-19 emerged for many as a surprise, the rise of antibiotic-resistant pathogens announces itself clearly, but we remain woefully unprepared.

In our series of publications, we illuminate the mechanisms driving the collapse of the antibiotics industry, discuss a case study, and propose ways to bring stakeholders together to come to a solution. At ttopstart, we believe such healthcare challenges can be evaded by creative strategic thinking and pragmatism.

 Breaking through this vicious circle requires uniting across all stakeholders. Please let us know if you like to join us in this fight.

Cultured meat

The biggest challenge for the cultured meat companies is the scale-up of the production and reduction of production costs. ttopstart helps these companies in developing smart strategies to achieve their goals. In this series of blogs we discuss which companies will bring cultured meat one step closer to our plate, and our expectations on when we will be eating cultured meat.
