Holy shit! Mental health and the gut (part 2 with Bloom Science)
Business Trip by PsyMed Ventures, a podcast exploring the future of mental health & wellness
Welcome back to Business Trip by PsyMed Ventures, a podcast exploring the future of mental health & wellness! 🍄
We continue our 2-part series on microbial therapeutics for mental health with Dr. Christopher Reyes, biophysicist, serial entrepreneur, and founder of Bloom Science. Dr. Reyes is an expert on leveraging microbes to treat neurological conditions like epilepsy and ALS.
Could the trillions of microbes in our gut be the key to treating mental health conditions like anxiety and depression? Greg and Matias dive into the possibilities with Dr. Reyes.
In this episode we discuss:
Translating microbiome science into a viable startup
Challenges in standardizing treatments when each person's microbiome is unique
Intellectual property and clinical trials
Raising capital as a microbiome company (they’ve raised a Series A)
