Google calls for guinea pigs for ambitious ‘Baseline’ health study

Google’s latest project from its Google X “Moonshot” division is every bit as ambitious as some of its robotics and communications projects like Glass. Google wants to map how the human body behaves when it’s healthy, which could dramatically improve modern medicine. Google’s study will initially take 175 volunteers from various groups of ethnicity, habit and area and conduct testing of methods and practices to inform a much larger study later on. The study is currently limited to the US, but Google will not say where for fear of biassing the study. By keeping the location a secret the study can screen out bias of people specifically seeking out Google’s study, which could skew the results. The man in control of the study is Dr. Andrew Conrad of Google X, but Google is not conducting the experiment alone: Duke University and Stanford University medical schools are working closely with the search giant to design the experiments and study the data. The study will be run by a doctor at a medical clinic who will be acting as the principle investigator – similar to the professors and doctors that oversee scientific and medical projects in academic labs that employ PhD students – despite Conrad leading the project from Google’s end. Google is providing money to get the project off the ground, in a similar way to other scientific funding bodies. Eventually, Google will also design and develop new wearable technology to monitor the health of participants in the study, providing more data on things like heart rate, blood pressure and possibly going as far as body chemistry as they go about their daily lives – the ultimate quantified self. Google’s vast computing power, used to run its search engine and various other services, also make a big contribution to how effective the study can be. Google Glass and the company’s self-driving cars are also products of Google X. Google states that the “Research is intended as a contribution to science; it’s not intended to generate a new product at Google.” That sounds altruistic, and it could be, but it could also give Google a route into a lucrative health market much further down the line, not directly from this study or the experiments and data from within it, but from spin-off ideas.

Stemonix looks to eliminate ‘guinea pig medicine’

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. Stemonix is working with Pairnomix, a precision-medicine firm with offices in Maple Grove that was spun out of Upsher-Smith last year, focusing on treatments for epilepsy. Last year Stemonix was the grand prize winner in the Minnesota Cup, an entrepreneurship competition organized by the Carlson School of Management. Stemonix products include its microHeart and microBrain platforms, which consist of standard-looking biopharma assay plates, with either 96 or 384 slots designed to hold globs of stem cells that rapidly evolve into tissue that closely resembles normal human heart and brain tissue. The stem cells are derived from adult tissue, not human embryos. Unlike other ways of rapidly creating tissue from stem cells, microHeart trays produce tissue that contains important proteins found in native tissues that can spontaneously beat and respond to electrical stimulation, among other key biologic features. The microBrain platform grows mature brain tissue with “Electro-active neuronal cells” that can spontaneously create “Functional neuronal circuitry and synapses,” the company’s website says. Stemonix also offers “Discovery as a Service,” or DaaS, in which it will create custom assays and do tests for potential toxicities and chemical interactions, and high-volume manufacturing platforms for stem cells culled from adult human blood and tissue. The first came about a decade ago, when Japanese researcher Dr. Shinya Yamanaka and colleagues published Nobel Prize-winning science that showed it was possible to cause adult cells to revert into raw stem cells, which can be regrown into new types of tissue. In the past, transforming blood into stem cells and then into heart cells yielded a blob of immature cells that lacked the physical structure of adult stem cells, Yeh said. Stemonix figured out how to use nanotechnology to overcome that problem. “When you control the microenvironment of the cells, it changes them,” Yeh said.
